Colorado Rockies beat Chicago Cubs in sudden-death record

Overall, the Cubs' bullpen has been pretty shaky lately, as Steve Cishek and Justin Wilson all finished September with an ERA above 4.

But nothing prepared them for this night, or a game filled with pain, pleasure and heart palpitations, both real and feigned by Murphy himself.

After Javier Baez's game-tying double in the eighth created a seismic event at the ballpark, the Cubs and Rockies battled into extra innings before the Rockies prevailed 2-1 in 13 innings.

The game-winning hit was delivered by Tony Wolters, who had an RBI single in the 13th inning that scored Trevor Story.

The crowd of 40,151 was juiced from the outset, giving the ballpark a playoff atmosphere one day after Cubs fans let their counterparts from Wisconsin outshout them in a 3-1 loss to the Brewers in the tiebreaker game. The first two games will be played on FS1. If we do that, there's no team that can beat us, and they know that, so that's why they run their mouth a lot, because they know we're the best. "Even when we're struggling, we are the head of everybody". Terrance Gore tried to sell that he was hit by a pitch, but was sent back to the plate after a review confirmed the initial call. Here is the 25-man roster for tonight's game from the Cubs.

Chicago will trot out its veteran southpaw to start as Jon Lester will toe the rubber on Tuesday night. The Rockies were in this very same game last season and lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-8.

On Saturday, authorities were still having difficulties coordinating rescue efforts. "Don't even think to find the inmates". About 17,000 people had been evacuated, the government disaster agency said and that number was expected to soar.

Getting a little nervous, Cubs fans?

Tuesday night's National League Wild Card game will begin at 6 p.m. (Mountain time) and will be televised by ESPN.

Now they had a chip on their collective shoulders the size of a '68 Impala, and a chance to show everyone what they were made of.

"We've got to stop worrying about other teams", he said. It will be the first-ever postseason meeting between the two franchises. Manager Joe Maddon said they would be available out of the bullpen. He kept it going in the postseason.

This game becomes an instant October classic.

The Cubs will have to do some serious soul-searching to find out why the offense disappeared at the most critical time of the year, including having the bases loaded in the seventh only to see pinch-hitter Jason Hayward strike out against a wild Adam Ottavino after a catcher's interference set the Cubs up. Although I might normally lean toward the former, I'm going with the latter in this case, not only because of Edwards' extreme wildness problems, but also because Sunday's appearance marked the lowest velocity of his career (he averaged under 93 mph), and continued a trend in that direction since mid-August.
