Colorado Rockies beat Chicago Cubs in sudden-death record

Colorado Rockies beat Chicago Cubs in sudden-death record

As for the bullpen, Cole Hamels will be available in relief and Pedro Strop could see his first action since September 13.

Really the only guy who can be trusted right now is Jesse Chavez, who pitched two scoreless innings on Monday against the Brewers.

The train stations in Chicago were packed Monday not just with morning commuters but also long lines of Milwaukee Brewers fans going to see the tie-breaking game for the NL Central title at Wrigley Field.

Tony Wolters hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the 13th inning, and the Colorado Rockies beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Tuesday night in an epic NL wild-card game. A Cubs team that preaches a positive one-day-at-a-time attitude only has one more guaranteed game left this year.

Freeland, the Rockies' quiet ace, dominated for 6 ²/₃ innings on three days' rest. He kept it going in the postseason. Even though this marked the fourth consecutive postseason appearance for the Cubs, a franchise record, there are many questions facing the team.

"We've got to stop worry about other teams", Baez said pregame Tuesday.

"And they know that, so that's why they run their mouth a lot, because they know we're the best", he added. "We'll be leaning on him hard, we've got to score him some runs so he can settle in".

"It doesn't matter, like everybody", Baez said. As a member of the Athletics, Lester started the one-game Wild Card playoff game against the Royals in Kansas City, where he was charged with six runs in 7 1/3 innings in a 9-8 loss. Fans. Who cares? I don't pay attention to it, but it's around.
