Colorado Rockies @ Chicago Cubs

Kyle Freeland vs. Jon Lester

Winner-take-all game at Wrigley Field. Cubs aiming to win 2nd NL Wild Card Game in team history. Rockies looking to avenge their loss in NL Wild Card Game last year. Key injury note for Cubs: closer Pedro Strop (hamstring) on roster after missing over two and a half weeks due to injury.

M11 — Something that baseball players do nowadays that a lot of old-school guys probably don't like bites Cubs. Bryant fields 2-out grounder & opts to go to 2B instead of throwing across diamond for easy out. Runner safe at 2B. Ensuing groundout saves Cubs, though, in bases-loaded situation. Hamels survives.

B11 — Bud Black is chatting with umpires about what Javy did. As lighthearted as it was, Baez's hug could've been some form of interference. A DP was possible on the play.

E11 — 12th inning coming up. Caratini hits inning-ending grounder to 1B. 2 left stranded for Cubs.

T12 — Maddon pulling out all the stops. Wilson pitches to just 1 batter before getting yanked in favor of Hendricks. 2 Cubs starters have now entered in relief.

M12 — Hendricks gets 2 straight outs. Nothing doing for Rockies so far in extras.

As the game heads into the 13th inning, this is officially the longest postseason game (both in innings & game time) in Wrigley Field history.

T13 — Hendricks left in game after giving up 2-out single. Parra then lofts single to RF to put runners on corners with 2 outs.

T13 — Wolters comes through with potentially the biggest hit of Colorado's season. Single up middle scores run & puts Rockies on top.

M13 — Despite throwing wild pitch, de la Rosa gets strikeout to get out of jam. Maddon might end up kicking himself for not putting him in one at-bat sooner.

B13 — Strange moment to start B13. Gore takes 1B after inside pitch seems like it might've grazed him. The pitch drilled the home-plate umpire after passing Gore. Rockies challenge ruling of HBP.

B13 — Having 2 challenges in playoffs pays off for Rockies (who lost 1 challenge earlier). Call overturned. Gore goes back to home plate & strikes out swinging on next pitch.

B13 — Cubs down to their final out. Baez strikes out swinging. Rockies reliever Oberg dealing some heat in 13th.

F/13 — Season over. Almora strikes out on 3 straight pitches. Cubs lose on, of all things, RBI given up by starter in relief spot. Hard to believe the Cubs won't be taking part in the NLDS.
