Colorado Rockies to meet Chicago Cubs in NL Wild Card Game

Tigers-Brewers-Baseball-33

For the first time in Major League Baseball history, a pair of tiebreaking games will settle two National League division titles after all four tied teams won on Sunday. Jon Lester would be on any short list of pitchers you would want in a sudden-death situation.

The Brewers would return to Milwaukee from Chicago with the division title and home-field advantage for the first game of the NLDS Thursday, Oct. 4. It will also be the second consecutive season that the Rockies have appeared in the Wild Card game.

FOX6 News spoke with several fans from Wisconsin who said they called in sick to work for Monday's game. Josh Hader is as scary as any reliever in the game as he showed once again Monday, when he pitched two scoreless innings, striking out three. Kyle Freeland will take the mound for Colorado. That included a loss at Wrigley Field on April 30 in which he allowed three runs over seven innings. Milwaukee blitzed Detroit 11-0, the Cubs beat the Cardinals 10-5, Colorado destroyed Washington 12-0 and the Dodgers trounced the Giants 15-0.

Walker Buehler was set to start for the Dodgers Monday, while German Marquez was slated to get the ball for the Rockies.

Should they do that, the Cubs will have a great shot to keep their postseason going beyond just one game.

With the Wild Card game being the true beginning of the postseason, both the Cubs and Rockies will be forced to cut down their rosters back to the 25-man limit.
