MILWAUKEE — Colorado heads to Milwaukee to open a best-of-five Division Series against the NL Central champion Brewers on Thursday, Oct. 4.
The Brewers host game one of the NLDS at 4:07 p.m.
Tony Wolters hit a tiebreaking single with two outs in the 13th inning and the Colorado Rockies outlasted the Chicago Cubs 2-1 at Wrigley Field Tuesday night in the longest win-or-go-home postseason game in major league history.
The Cubs made it to the NLCS in each of the previous three seasons, winning the 2016 World Series to break a 108-year drought, but they were plagued by an inconsistent offense all season long. Chicago finished with six hits and left 10 runners on base after managing only three hits in Monday’s 3-1 home loss to the Brewers in the NL Central tiebreaker.
