CHICAGO - The night Chicago died.

That's what Oct. 2, 2018, was for the Chicago Cubs, courtesy of YOUR Colorado Rockies. In 13 grueling, hair-whitening, nailbiting, ulcer-inducing innings, the Rockies beat the Cubs 2-1 at Wrigley Field. Tony Wolters' single in the top of the 13th brought in Trevor Story, and Scott Oberg held it from there to give the Rockies the National League Wild Card.

It's on to Milwaukee now for the Rocks, for Game 1 of the NLDS. It was the longest postseason game in Wrigley Field history, and the Rockies walked off the field vanquishers of a team nobody - certainly not the pro-Cubs ESPN broadcast crew that called Story's two-out single in the 13th that started the winning rally a "win for the Cubs" - believed could happen.

Sorry, national networks, but it's Colorado-Milwaukee now, and the Cubs are going home.
