Rockies win NL Wild Card thriller

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

On Monday, the Cubs were defeated by the Milwaukee Brewers for the NL Central division crown while the Rockies were taken down by the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL West title. 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. The 34-year-old won two World Series with the Boston Red Sox in 2007 and 2013 as the ace of their staff and also has experienced plenty of early exits.

"We played that game a lot", said manager Joe Maddon, who matched a postseason record by using 23 players.

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

As a member of the Athletics, Lester started the one-game Wild Card playoff game against the Royals in Kansas City, where he was charged with six runs in 7 1/3 innings in a 9-8 loss.

Amazon Raising Minimum Wage To $15 For All US Workers
Walmart, which has 1 million workers, raised its minimum wage to $11 earlier this year. That will include more than 250,000 full time employees and 100,000 seasonal workers.

"Sometimes you just get beat and we got beat tonight", Lester said. To make matters worse, the dispiriting way that the Rockies fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday, October 1, made a win at Wrigley Field on October 2 that much more hard to pull off. But even though the Rockies struck first, notching a run in the opening frame by way of a Charlie Blackmon walk, a DJ LeMahieu double and a Nolan Arenado sacrifice fly, maintaining such a narrow advantage proved impossible.

Rather Lester, who accumulated a 3.32 ERA across his 32 regular-season appearances, used the contest to pad his reputation as a top big-game pitcher. With two outs, he came on as a pinch runner and stole second.

Getting a little nervous, Cubs fans?

Gore instead faced a 3-2 count and struck out, and so did Baez and Almora, ending the game. "I think this will go down as a Major League Baseball classic".
