Cody Bellinger - L.A. Dodgers

The Dodgers picked up a 5-2 win on Monday to win the NL West. The first player to come up big was Cody Bellinger. He connected on a two-run homer in the fourth to put his team up 2-0 for an early lead.

Max Muncy - L.A. Dodgers

Bellinger's teammate Max Muncy helped build the lead even more. Just an inning after Bellinger homered, Muncy smashed his 35th home run of the season. The two-run shot made it a 4-0 game for the home team. They're now the NL West Champions thanks to Bellinger and Muncy.

Christian Yelich - Milwaukee Brewers

Milwaukee was also a big winner in their tiebreaker for the NL Central. They picked up a 3-1 victory over the Cubs on Monday, at Wrigley Field. NL MVP front runner Yelich had a superb outing, going 3-for-4 and collecting an RBI in the win. Now, they can rest up a few days rather than playing too soon after today's victory.
