BBTN: Nats Win, AL Wild Card, Hembo Knows

A top reliever melts down, a young star emerges and one team moves on. With that, Buster welcomes Dave Schoenfield to break down the wild NL Wild Card game that was (11:05). Then, ESPN's Matt Vasgersian talks about the crazy atmosphere expected for tonight's AL Wild Card (27:11) and Susan Sussman of the San Fransisco Chronicle (34:53) and Marc Topkin of The Tampa Bay Times (39:20) preview tonight's A's/Rays showdown.

The Phillies announced plans Tuesday to extend safety netting for 2020, becoming the 13th MLB team to commit to or put in extensions since a toddler's 5/29 head injury on a foul liner in Houston. The Astros, Braves, Chisox, Dodgers, Nats & O's have installed extensions & the Brewers, D-backs, Jays, Pirates, Rangers & Royals said they plan to. Some teams say they're considering extensions and the Marlins had extended theirs to 150 feet past each dugout before the 2019 season.

Grisham on error: Hurts 'gifting' Nats NLDS berth

Brewers rookie Trent Grisham was crestfallen after his eighth-inning error in right field propelled the Nationals to a wild-card win Tuesday. "It's going to sting," he said. "It's going to sting for a long time."


Soto lifts Nats to 4-3 comeback wild-card win over Brewers

Washington's Juan Soto delivered a bases-loaded single against Josh Hader that scored three runs with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning, and the Nationals rallied to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3 in the NL wild-card game Tuesday night.

Nats Park just got real quiet. Two batters in, the Brewers took a 2-0 lead after Trent Grisham walked and Yasmani Grandal homered. Should be interesting to see just how much rope manager Davey Martinez gives ace Max Scherzer.

Cards win NL Central; Brewers settle for wild card

St. Louis advances to the NL Division Series, which starts Thursday at Atlanta, while the second-place Brewers will play at Washington in the NL wild-card game Tuesday night, with the winner moving on to play the Dodgers.

The 2019 MLB playoff field is officially set. The Brewers and Nats will meet in the NL wild-card game with the winner facing the Dodgers in one NLDS and Cardinals-Braves the other. The Rays will face the A's in the AL wild-card game with the winner playing the Astros in one ALDS and Twins-Yankees the other matchup.

Dan Mullen ESPN.com 

The NL Central is still up in the air on the final day of the regular season. St. Louis wins the division with either a win or a Milwaukee loss. But if neither of those happen, the Brewers and Cardinals would play a one-game tiebreaker in St. Louis on Monday (3 p.m. ET, ESPN and ESPN Radio) for the division crown.
