Colorado Rockies Douse Wrigley Field In Champagne After Upsetting Cubs

  • Cubs bullpen workhorse Steve Cishek has pitched the last three days as the Cubs face a loser-out playoff opener Tuesday

That seems like small consolation now.

Karl Ravech, Mark Teixeira and Tim Kurkjian react to the Colorado Rockies' 2-1 victory against the Chicago Cubs in 13 innings in the National League Wild Card Game at Wrigley Field.

They squandered a dominant start by Jon Lester, got shut down by Kyle Freeland and wasted several big scoring opportunities.

Just like that, the season comes down to a final game, and October is only two days old. The Cubs challenged the call to no avail.

Lester still thinks this team would win tomorrow if they could play again. In what should be of no surprise to Cubs fans, Davis showed little emotion as he left the mound. The Rockies were in this very same game last season and lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks 11-8.

"All I can say is I'm extremely proud of how we've come together", Kris Bryant said.

The Rockies are in the Wild Card game for the second consecutive year after losing to Arizona last season, while the Cubs last played in the Wild Card game in 2015, beating Pittsburgh.

Game 3 will be held in either Chicago or Denver, based on who wins the Wild Card game. And this loss stings.

"It's Jonny Lester, he's pitched in a few big games before, he's got a resume", said Anthony Rizzo of Lester. "We've really flipped this culture here".

Lester did his part Tuesday, allowing just one run on four hits over six innings with nine strikeouts.

Baez walked leading off against Seunghwan Oh and moved up on a sacrifice bunt by Almora. Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado exchanged a memorable hug with Javier Baez after he tagged the excitable Cubs star in the 11th.

Chris Rusin then retired pinch-hitter Victor Caratini on a grounder to first to end the inning.

Couldn't have said it better ourselves. "I mean, it wasn't like we beat ourselves". "Sometimes you have to take the bad with the good". "We'll be ready to go come February whatever the date is".
