They tied for the most wins in the National League through 162 games.

Why? Because they absolutely blew it. On Tuesday, they did just that with ESPN.

So now the Cubs and Rockies play in the National League wild-card game.

On Monday, the Brewers beat the Cubs 3-1 to claim their first NL Central title since 2011. This team just let two different teams come into their home ballpark and celebrate on their field on consecutive nights.

After the Cubs failed to stop the Brewers through 162 games, a Game 163 was needed to decide a champion. It was another very disappointing appearance, and I remarked that I'm not sure the Cubs could justify carrying him on a postseason roster at this point.

This is the second time that each franchise has played in the Wild Card Game. They should've been completely gassed, and the Cubs should've had every advantage. As a member of the Athletics, Lester started the one-game Wild Card playoff game against the Royals in Kansas City, where he was charged with six runs in 7 1/3 innings in a 9-8 loss.

The hug struck Rockies manager Bud Black as interference. But Heyward struck out swinging. The hitter grounded one to Arenado at third base who tagged Baez, the lead runner.

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 in the longest win-or-go-home postseason game in major league history.

Rockies closer Wade Davis came on to end the inning at 1-1 by striking out Albert Almora Jr. after Baez had stolen third.

To add more misery to the Cubs' anemic offense, the team wasted an incredible outing from their starting pitcher.

Don't blame the wild card format for the fact that the Cubs won't be playing in a postseason series this year.
