The Cubs may be in the precarious position of playing the Rockies in the win-or-go-home National League wild-card game Tuesday night, but infielder and MVP candidate Javier Baez isn't lacking for confidence.

The Cubs left stunned, saddened and stumped about why they stopped hitting and what will come next now with their season suddenly over. When Lester struck out Matt Holliday - the star of the Rockies' 2007 playoff run - to end the sixth, he let loose a ferocious display of emotion as he walked off the mound to an explosion of cheers from the Cubs faithful. The Rockies defeated the Cubs 11-2.

They should interview, but also be guided. "It can't be used in a criminal case, it's an investigative tool", Flagg said. Judge has denied Ford's allegations.

"Excited about it", manager Bud Black said. Even though this marked the fourth consecutive postseason appearance for the Cubs, a franchise record, there are many questions facing the team. He started the Cubs' last Wild Card Game and will be making his 22nd postseason start against the Rockies. In 2016, they rallied from 3-1 down in the World Series and won Game 7 at Cleveland to bring home the first championship in 108 years.

"This is nothing new to us", outfielder Jason Heyward said.

If they win, they can sit back and watch the Wild Card games like regular fans resting up until they play again on Thursday. Freeland left leading 1-0 with two outs in the seventh after giving up four measly hits and striking out six on 82 pitches.

Add Kyle Freeland to the list of hometown heroes. The Cubs were unable to respond in the bottom of the 13th.

"It's definitely a little different", Rizzo said.

Should the game be extended, Cole Hamels, Kyle Hendricks and Mike Montgomery also are available Tuesday night behind scheduled starter Jon Lester.
