Chicago Cubs vs. Colorado Rockies in NL Wild Card Game: Time, TV schedule, game preview, score

The Rockies and the Cubs split six games this year each scoring 33 runs. They haven't faced each other since early May. They meet again tonight at 6:05

After playing its third big game over three days in three different cities, Colorado now heads to Milwaukee to open a best-of-five Division Series against the NL Central champion Brewers on Thursday. He retired all four batters he faced, including going 1-2-3 in a 13th inning that included an overturn on a Rockies-requested review when Cubs leadoff man Terrance Gore had been ruled to have been hit by a pitch.

Lester knows what he's talking about, though: Tuesday marked the 26th postseason outing of his 13-year career (22nd start), which is more than the entire Rockies roster combined. The guys also discuss how Cubs manager Joe Maddon's job could be in jeopardy based on another early postseason exit.

Willson Contreras was batting for the Chicago Cubs with runners on first and second and one out in the bottom of the 11th.

Anthony Rizzo grounded into a double-play with two on in the sixth, and they left the bases loaded in the seventh when Jason Heyward struck out. He'll be opposed by Kyle Freeland of the Rockies, who is 17-7 with a 2.85 ERA, but he will be making his first playoff start.

"I felt like it grazed me a little", Gore said, "but clearly, it didn't".

There, they found $50,000 in cash, watches, jewelry, designer bags and other valuables, Carranza said. Puig has been burglarized four times, including twice last month at his home in Encino.


This one lasted 4 hours, 55 minutes, and had pretty much everything, too.

Freeland, a 17-game victor for the Rockies this year, got the best of it for 6 2/3 scoreless innings. He'll be working the Red Sox-Wild Card Division Series.

There was an MVP chant for Charlie Blackmon.

Lester then limited the damage by striking out Story and Matt Holliday with LeMahieu on third.

"I think this is a classic", Black said.
