Cubs eliminated from playoffs with loss to Rockies

Will’s Northwoods Inn

There is no rest for the tired as the Chicago Cubs host the Colorado Rockies in the 2018 National League Wild Card Game at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night. Milwaukee pitching silenced the Cubs' bats in a 3-1 victory that sends them to the National League Division Series, while their opponents suddenly face elimination.

For the second time in as many days a Cubs opponent celebrated at Wrigley Field.

The Chicago Cubs won 95 games this season, but they lost two in two - well technically three - days and are officially out of the Major League Baseball postseason. "This is something we really believe we can sustain".

"We didn't make it easy on ourselves, that's for sure", Story said, "but we're going to enjoy this one tonight and we're definitely not done".

That is not a guy to whom you can entrust the most important innings in a season.

Freeland, meanwhile, allowed just one Cub to reach scoring position before leaving two outs into the seventh inning.

Strop was under consideration to return for the win-or-go-home game against the Colorado Rockies after missing the past two weeks. "It's unfortunate it ended up in this manner".




Scott Oberg, the sixth Colorado pitcher, fanned Kris Bryant for the final out of the 12th and then struck out the side in the 13th to end the longest postseason game at 104-year-old Wrigley.

"It's Jonny Lester, he's pitched in a few big games before, he's got a resume", said Anthony Rizzo of Lester. In the eighth, the Cubs' Javier Baez doubled in pinch-runner Terrance Gore to knot things up.

But when Almora followed with an inning-ending strikeout, the flickering continued.

Ottavino had an 0-2 count on Baez when his third pitch got too much of the plate.

This time, it was Kyle Freeland cruising through Maddon's lineup.

Seven innings earlier, the Rockies needed just 13 pitches to score their only run of regulation play.
