The Rockies are moving on after historic win at Wrigley Field

Oct 2 2018 Chicago IL USA Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon speaks at a press conference after losing to the Colorado Rockies in the 2018

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. Sure, the Colorado Rockies, who hadn't made it past the wild-card game in this decade, slayed the beast that was the Cubs, who ran out of steam and failed to live up to expectations in an uncharacteristically early postseason exit. "We've really flipped this culture here". In what should be of no surprise to Cubs fans, Davis showed little emotion as he left the mound.

Trevor Story hits a single in the thirteenth inning.

But you should have seen the other guys.

Davis was summoned by Rockies manager Bud Black (a former Royals pitcher) and Davis struck out Albert Almora Jr., which kept the game tied at 1-1.

"We should always be ready and I think we were, we just lost", Bryant said.

After being five games up on the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central as late as August this season, they now find themselves out of the playoffs after just one game.

"In 2015, we were winning the wild-card game no matter what", Rizzo said.

And Jon Lester had a very straight-forward response to the end of his team's season.

Freeland, a 17-game victor for the Rockies this year, got the best of it for 6 2/3 scoreless innings.

And despite putting the leadoff man on three times, he didn't pitch with a Cub in scoring position until sixth.

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

Colorado scored in the top of the 13th in the NL Wild Card game and slammed the door on Chicago in the bottom of the frame. and then it was time for champagne and Budweiser. "Even when we're struggling, we are the head of everybody".

His lone walk cost him the only run he allowed.

There was an MVP chant for Charlie Blackmon. Daniel Murphy was intentionally walked and Baez got tagged out by Arenado on Willson Contreras' grounder to third. However, Adam Ottavino struck out Jason Heyward to end the threat.

After the double, Lester retired 18 of the final 21 batters he faced, including seven more strikeouts.

Joe Maddon is expected to be the manager of the Chicago Cubs again in 2019.
