Rockies advance to NLDS with extra-innings victory over Cubs

The team store is staying open all night - not closing again until 8 p.m. Tuesday. Colorado has never won its division.

The Rockies are in the Wild Card game for the second consecutive year after losing to Arizona last season, while the Cubs last played in the Wild Card game in 2015, beating Pittsburgh. On cue, Gore, the fastest man in Chicago - sorry, Tarik Cohen - stole second base to put himself in position for Baez to bring him home quicker than you could say did-you-see-that?

North Korea, South Korea begin removing land mines along border
In 2015, a land mine blast blamed on North Korea maimed two South Korean soldiers and pushed the Koreas to the brink of war. The 20-day exercise that began on Monday saw South Korean troops clearing landmines at the Joint Security Area (JSA).

Before the tension mounted, Maddon revealed pregame that in the past couple of offseasons he bought two bikes from Freeland's brother at a shop in Tampa, Fla., each time sharing how much he appreciated Kyle's talents as a pitcher. The Rockies played extremely well down the stretch and caught and passed the Los Angeles Dodgers, but Colorado lost in the tiebreaker game on the road. He'll be opposed by Kyle Freeland of the Rockies, who is 17-7 with a 2.85 ERA, but he will be making his first playoff start. During the month of September, Lester was 4-1 with a 1.52 ERA, shaking off a shaky few months after the All-Star Break to help the Cubs back to the postseason for a franchise-record fourth-straight season. A Cubs team that preaches a positive one-day-at-a-time attitude only has one more guaranteed game left this year. He did everything he could to keep his team within striking distance until they eventually rallied with a Javy Baez game-tying single in the eighth. "We've got to go out there and have fun". They had six hits Tuesday night.

There are several other players who have games Monday that also have 36 home runs and are near the league lead in RBI, so it's possible the home run from May won't factor in.

As a teen, Kavanaugh was never a legal drinker in Maryland
President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee said a number of times that he had never drank to the point of memory loss. At one point, Kavanaugh asked a Senator if they like drinking beer too.

He'll be facing a loaded lineup that features Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story, both of whom hit home runs in the NL West playoff loss to Los Angeles on Monday. This year, they could not make it to the NLDS.

On the one hand, this absurd game was postseason baseball at its finest.
