Colorado Rockies Douse Wrigley Field In Champagne After Upsetting Cubs

Colorado Rockies Douse Wrigley Field In Champagne After Upsetting Cubs

Whatever happens, it's going to be a long winter for the Cubs and their fans as they look back on a disastrous end of the year.

That's what October 2, 2018, was for the Chicago Cubs, courtesy of YOUR Colorado Rockies. Heyward struck out to end the inning. The Cubs are expected to retain manager Joe Maddon through the 2019 season, ESPN.com's Jesse Rogers reports.

The Cubs' season officially is over after they lost a 2-1 heartbreaker in 13 innings to the Colorado Rockies in the National League wild-card game at Wrigley Field.

There was some doubt about Maddon's standing as the skipper of the Cubs, especially after his team was ousted from the postseason after only one game, but he will finish out his contract with the Cubs.

The Rockies only scored two runs ... but it was enough it reinforced what got the Rockies to this point.

Kyle Schwarber added, "I know (the Rockies) played 163 (regular-season games), too, and you know, hats off to them, they did a great job". With starter Kyle Hendricks on the mound for the Cubs, the Rockies recorded three singles with two outs, the last one driving in a run off the bat of bench player Tony Wolters.

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.

If you're Gore facing Scott Oberg to lead off the bottom of the 13th inning, you leave the bat on your shoulders the entire time, right? The free-swinging slugger drove it into the gap in left-center for a tying double, easily scoring Gore from second and sending a charge through the crowd. "Got a lot of people that have been through a lot this year, people that went on the DL and people that did not". He might even be able to get to third base on his own, opening up the possibility for a sacrifice fly, an RBI ground out, or a chance to score on a wild pitch/passed ball.
