Rockies Win NL Wild Card, Beat Cubs 2-1

Cubs-Rockies predictions Our staff picks the winner of Tuesday’s wild-card showdown at Wrigley Field

Karl Ravech, Mark Teixeira and Tim Kurkjian react to the Colorado Rockies' 2-1 victory against the Chicago Cubs in 13 innings in the National League Wild Card Game at Wrigley Field.

For the second time in as many days a Cubs opponent celebrated at Wrigley Field.

This will be the fourth time Lester has pitched in a "Win or Go Home" game in his playoff career and his second with the Cubs, although this will be his first start. "It's unfortunate it ended up in this manner".

"I feel like in the game of baseball, you can never predict anything", he said. He'll be opposed by Kyle Freeland of the Rockies, who is 17-7 with a 2.85 ERA, but he will be making his first playoff start.

Ultimately the umpires decided not to penalize Baez, but the Rockies got the next batter grounded out to take the game into the 12th inning. Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado exchanged a memorable hug with Javier Baez after he tagged the excitable Cubs star in the 11th.

Couldn't have said it better ourselves.

This one lasted 4 hours, 55 minutes, and had pretty much everything, too.

Lester did his job on this day, even as Twitter clamored for more when he was lifted at 86 pitches for pinch-hitter Ian Happ leading off the bottom of the sixth.

After Lester walked Charlie Blackmon on five pitches, DJ LeMahieu belted a ground-rule double into the ivy in left-center, sending Blackmon to third.

It's hard to argue with Maddon's track record since coming to Wrigleyville, as the Cubs have a 387-261 record and four postseason appearances in his four seasons as manager, highlighted by the curse-breaking 2016 World Series championship. But Heyward struck out swinging.

The Cubs got another chance when Anthony Rizzo singled with two outs in the eighth, and Maddon went for it.
