Rockies win NL Wild Card thriller

04 October 2018

It's on to Milwaukee now for the Rocks, for Game 1 of the NLDS.

"There's not a group of guys I would take into another one-game playoff tomorrow then this group", he said.

Maybe that's why the Cubs were quite confident in their chances despite being involved in a "Win or Go Home" game right off the bat in the 2018 playoffs. Finally, during the thirteenth, the Rox got the run they needed courtesy of an unlikely hero, third-string catcher Tony Wolters, and then kept the Cubs quiet during their final at-bat. 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.

For me it is a little bit odd , but OK, mistakes are made, I make them as well, and the assistant and ref they can make them as well".

Though the Cubs' postseason run ended earlier than the team hoped, the loss in last night's NL wild card game doesn't seem like it will lead to a change in the dugout. The batting order is full of top-tier Major League Baseball hitters for the Cubs, and yet they struggled mightily on offense at different times this year. However, they have failed to live up to expectations. Sure, the Colorado Rockies, who hadn't made it past the wild-card game in this decade, slayed the beast that was the Cubs, who ran out of steam and failed to live up to expectations in an uncharacteristically early postseason exit. But Heyward struck out swinging. He has hit.063/.211/.063 but has stolen 27 bases in 31 attempts. This was the team that tied for the most wins in the National League.

Seunghwan Oh pitches in the tenth inning. The veteran lefty got out of trouble in the first inning and was stellar until he was pulled before the seventh. Of course not, as of the 50 Cubs batters who came to the plate, only 11 reached base. Even Maddon's job may be in jeopardy.

Seeing as how Lester will turn 35 before he makes his next start for the Cubs, it's fair to wonder how many more big postseason moments he has in front of him. This team just let two different teams come into their home ballpark and celebrate on their field on consecutive nights.
