Rockies Oust Cubs from Playoffs in 13-Innings

In the longest elimination game in Major League Baseball history, the Colorado Rockies out-lasted the Chicago Cubs 2-1 in 13-innings last night to move on to the National League Divisional Series…
And it was an unheralded, backup catch who was hitting .170 and hadn’t had a hit since September 10th who came through in the clutch. Trevor Wolters delivered a two-out, RBI single on an oh-two pitch to give the Rockies the game-winner. Scott Oberg struck out the side in the bottom of the 13th to lock up the win and advance Colorado to the next round against Milwaukee.

The American League Wild Card game is tonight in New York where the Yankees host Oakland. First pitch is at 5:08.
