Cubs-Brewers Set For National League Tiebreaker

  • Jon Lester will hold the Cubs' season in his hands in the NL Wild Card game

Following batting practice Tuesday night at Wrigley Field, a anxious Joe Maddon offered these words to The Post.

Wolters, a reserve catcher who entered as part of a double switch in the bottom of the 12th, came up with runners at the corners and drove in Trevor Story with a liner back up the middle off Kyle Hendricks, quieting the Wrigley Field crowd of 40,151 on a crisp fall night. Arizona ended Colorado's season past year in the Wild Card game played at Chase Field.

The Cubs lost their National League Central tiebreaker game to the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday, while the Rockies lost their National League West tiebreaker game to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Could the Cubs for once be the beneficiaries of a classic, made-for-October gaffe?

Officially a playoff game unlike the 163rd game tiebreakers each team played Monday, the roster limit maximum is set at 25 players.

3 takeaways from the Dodgers win over the Rockies
The Colorado Rockies' Charlie Blackmon completed a cycle by hitting an RBI double in the bottom of the eighth inning Sunday. Cody Bellinger was 1-for-16 in his career against Rockies starter German Marquez entering his at-bat in the fourth inning.

Freeland, the Rockies' quiet ace, dominated for 6 ²/₃ innings on three days' rest.

Baez continued: "That's why they run their mouths a lot because they know we're the best and even though we're struggling, we're like [ahead] of everybody". It was another very disappointing appearance, and I remarked that I'm not sure the Cubs could justify carrying him on a postseason roster at this point.

"We've got to stop worrying about other teams", he said.

But after Almora singled to lead off the second, Freeland retired the next 12 hitters through the fifth inning, and the zeroes on the old center field scoreboard kept piling up as the night went on. Everybody, fans. Who cares? "We'll be leaning on him hard, we've got to score him some runs so he can settle in".
