Rockies defeat Cubs 2-1 in NL Wild Card Game, advance to NLDS

The Cubs had made the National League Championship Series in each of the last three seasons, but after losing their division lead and then the NL Central to the Brewers in September and then in Monday’s Game 163, they were forced to face the Rockies in the NL Wild Card Game.

The Rockies fought back against the odds that had them not making the postseason to get here, turning this into a battle between two teams heading in different directions. And the results played out that way, too, with Colorado winning 2-1 to advance to the NLDS against Milwaukee.

This was the longest sudden-death game in MLB postseason history by the time it ended, and if you want to know how it all went down, well, you’re in the right place. Below is the live blog we produced during the game, for those seeking a full-on, play-by-play recap of the Cubs’ elimination and the Rockies’ victory.
