Rockies advance to NLDS with extra-innings victory over Cubs

Both teams had lost a tie-breaker Monday to end up in the wildcard game. Jon Lester would be on any short list of pitchers you would want in a sudden-death situation. Arizona ended Colorado's season a year ago in the Wild Card game played at Chase Field.

Javy Baez showed no shortage of confidence before the Cubs host the Rockies in the 2018 NL Wild Card Game on Tuesday night.

This loss comes on the heels of a 3-1 loss to the Brewers on Monday at Wrigley Field that gave the Brewers the NL Central crown and put the Cubs in this do-or-die game. The Cubs defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2015 to spark a run to the NLCS, which ended at the hands of the New York Mets. As for the bullpen, Cole Hamels will be available in relief and Pedro Strop could see his first action since September 13.

When asked who was running their mouths - the rival Brewers? Could the Cubs for once be the beneficiaries of a classic, made-for-October gaffe?
