‘Amazing Opportunity’: Rockies Face Cubs At Wrigley Field In Wild-Card Game

  • The NL Will Have Two One-Game Playoff Games For The First Time Ever

On Monday, the Cubs were defeated by the Milwaukee Brewers for the NL Central division crown while the Rockies were taken down by the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL West title.

You certainly get nervous when you hear about a pitcher's forearm, because of its connection to the elbow. On cue, Gore, the fastest man in Chicago - sorry, Tarik Cohen - stole second base to put himself in position for Baez to bring him home quicker than you could say did-you-see-that?

This time it was the Rockies, 2-1 winners of the longest playoff game ever at Wrigley Field. Freeland has been a revelation this year, posting the best ERA (2.85) by a Rockies starting pitcher in franchise history. It will be a quick turnaround for both clubs, who had the luxury of expanded rosters for their respective Game 163s.

Lester settled down to escape the first with two strikeouts, relying mostly on effective off-speed stuff and the craft and guile that carried the lefty through 21 previous playoff starts.

In the biggest game of his young career, the Denver native put on a show-stopping performance at Wrigley Field that punched the Colorado Rockies' ticket to the NLDS in an extra-innings, 2-1 win over the Cubs in the NL Wild Card game on Tuesday night.

Daniel Sturridge stunner snatches late point for Liverpool at Chelsea
There are six or seven top teams, top in Europe, not only in England, so it's not easy to get into the Champions League. Last season, Salah would have scored at least one of the chances he had at Chelsea , but it wasn't his day here.

In an epic win-or-go-home game, the Cubs exited to the offseason. In Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, Lester appeared in relief of Kyle Hendricks in the fifth inning and pitched into the eighth, allowing just one earned run while striking out four with just a walk.

Strop injured his hamstring running the bases September 13.

Yet those defeats are distant memories for Cubs' players, many of whom weren't even in the league when they occurred. Terrance Gore, used nearly exclusively as a pinch-runner, received multiple at-bats for just the second time in his career because the Cubs didn't have anyone else to bring in for him.

Anthony Rizzo got off to a slow start before going on a tear. "We've got to go out there and have fun".

Should they do that, the Cubs will have a great shot to keep their postseason going beyond just one game.
