Given that ESPN is broadcasting the Wild Card Game, we think they probably should have known this before.
This is the first time the Rockies have advanced to the NLDS since 2009 when they lost to the Philadelphia Phillies. This team just let two different teams come into their home ballpark and celebrate on their field on consecutive nights.

Of course it wasn't, and wild was only the tip of the iceberg of adjectives one could use to describe the Rockies' 2-1 win that spanned two days and almost five hours (an actual historically long postseason contest) and shaved unknowable years off all of our lives. After losing to the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Rockies then boarded a plane and traveled two time zones forward to Chicago for a must-win game the very next day. Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado exchanged a memorable hug with Javier Baez after he tagged the excitable Cubs star in the 11th.
Veteran workhorse Jon Lester pitched valiently going six strong innings giving up only one run while striking out nine batters.
Chicago loaded the bases with two outs, getting some help when Drew Butera was called for catcher's interference, but Ottavino struck out pinch-hitter Jason Heyward to end the inning. His in-game decisions have notably been under a magnifying glass in the playoffs, including in the final two games of the World Series in 2016, when overused closer Aroldis Chapman, who faltered late before the Cubs responded to capture their long-awaited championship.

Brett Kavanaugh says he won't let "false accusations " drive him from his quest to win Senate confirmation to the Supreme Court . Ramirez told The New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a dormitory party in the 1983-1984 academic year.
He fought valiantly in the 12th round, opening with a big right uppercut, and then kept firing until the closing bell. He seemed to want to follow up on his prediction, stalking Triple G at times, but never seemed to really hurt him.
