Rockies win NL Wild Card thriller

Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar shot one across the Cubs' bow the day before the tiebreaker by telling a reporter, "They know they've got a problem tomorrow". The first two games will be played on FS1.

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".

The Cubs had everything going for them heading into the wild-card game.

Jon Lester is scheduled to take the mound for the Cubs while Kyle Freeland is expected to be the starter for the Rockies. The Rockies were in this very same game last season and lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-8.

You certainly get nervous when you hear about a pitcher's forearm, because of its connection to the elbow.

The Cubs may be in the precarious position of playing the Rockies in the win-or-go-home National League wild-card game Tuesday night, but infielder and MVP candidate Javier Baez isn't lacking for confidence.

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 worry about other teams", Baez said pregame Tuesday. Arenado led the National League in home runs with 38 while Story was just one behind with 37.

"It's the seventh game of the World Series right out of the chute", Cubs manager Joe Maddon told reporters. He kept it going in the postseason. When Lester struck out Matt Holliday to end the sixth with a man on second, he screamed and pumped his fist, as if he could transfer his energy to his teammates through osmosis.

This game becomes an instant October classic.

Not this time. Rizzo quickly grounded into an inning-ending double play, and the would-be storybook rally had crashed-and-burned. He's also set a new career high in appearances this season.
