The Colorado Rockies beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 Tuesday in a wild game that kicked off the Major League Baseball postseason. Colorado’s Tony Wolters’ two-out single off Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks in the 13th inning sent the Rockies to the National League Divisional Series. The Cubs won 95 games this year and were the World Series champs just 2 years ago, but ended their season last night. The Rockies will face the Milwaukee Brewers in the NLDS series, with Game 1 set for Thursday night. The Oakland A’s face the New York Yankees tonight in the American League Wild Card Game.
