Joe Maddon's club has reached the NLCS from 2015-2017, but after a disappointing end to the 2018 season, the Cubbies won't even be going to the NLDS.

Why? Because they absolutely blew it. The Rockies aren't ending a nine-year postseason drought. The win gave the Brewers home field advantage.

After the Cubs failed to stop the Brewers through 162 games, a Game 163 was needed to decide a champion.

Kerem Demirbay's ball found Belfodil and he had acres of space before he slotted the ball under Ederson and into the net. Fernandinho did fire at Baumann but City lacked control and Walker was booked for a bad challenge on Kaderabek.


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. He stretched a couple of times and tried to figure out when he might get a chance to play. Zobrist also played right field and left field in the game.

Game 3 will be held in either Chicago or Denver, based on who wins the Wild Card game. They should've been completely gassed, and the Cubs should've had every advantage.

A freaky hug between Nolan Arenado and the Cubs' Javy Baez had the internet going insane in the 11th inning of the National League wild-card game on Tuesday night. However, Adam Ottavino struck out Jason Heyward to end the threat.

Lester stranded LeMahieu at third base, then allowed only three more hits - including doubles by Matt Holliday and Story - before leaving for a pinch hitter in the last of the sixth, still down just 1-0.

A day later, the Cubs fell 2-1 to the Rockies in 13 innings in the NL wild-card game, which marked Chicago's earliest playoff elimination under Maddon, who's regarded a quality leader and motivator but whose in-game tactical acumen has often come under fire.

It's hard to argue with Maddon's track record since coming to Wrigleyville, as the Cubs have a 387-261 record and four postseason appearances in his four seasons as manager, highlighted by the curse-breaking 2016 World Series championship.

Elon Musk steps down as Tesla Chairman after Controversial Tweet
Musk posted a series of tweets in August that detailed his now-defunct plans to take the electric carmaker private. A more worrisome problem would be if Tesla built these cars and now doesn't have customers willing to take them.


Rizzo's spot came up twice more in the game with Gore striking out both times, including leading off a 1-2-3 13. The Rockies lost to Arizona in the NL wild-card game a year ago.
