Brewers' National League Division Series game times announced

The NL Will Have Two One-Game Playoff Games For The First Time Ever

As a result, Arenado did not make a throw to first for a possible double play after tagging Baez out - but the umpires let it slide.

Chicago will trot out its veteran southpaw to start as Jon Lester will toe the rubber on Tuesday night.

"He's a really good pitcher", Maddon said beforehand.

Javier Baez of the Chicago Cubs gets back to second base before the tag attempt by Pat Valaika of the Colorado Rockies at Wrigley Field on May 2, 2018.

The Cubs needed a Javy miracle on a night nothing else worked against Rockies starter Kyle Freeland. After Freeland frustrated so many Cubs hitters, the next cycle Maddon buys from his brother should be on the house. The Cubs ace, pitching in his third winner-take-all game, gave up a few long, loud outs and more hard contact than he would have liked, but he also gave his team a chance the way everyone expected.

Before the game, Baez sounded the alarm. "We've got to go out there and have fun".

"I don't know if there is anybody better in the big leagues in a situation like this", said Cubs infielder Daniel Murphy, who faced Lester in the 2015 playoffs with the Mets and the 2017 postseason with the Nationals. Everybody, fans. Who cares?

The Cubs had just three hits in their loss Monday to the Brewers. On this crisp night in Chicago, it was impossible to tell that one of them hadn't been in this spot before.

As the Cubs were playing the Cardinals on Sunday, trying to force a Game 163 against the Brewers, Joe Maddon brought in Carl Edwards Jr.to try to hold down what was already a huge lead.

They have three straight appearances in the NL Championship Series and a World Series championship in 2016 that ended a 108-year drought.

The Brewers won four of six against Chicago in September to help forge the tiebreaker game after the Cubs went from trailing them by 4 1/2 games in the division to leading by five. And they beat Washington in a grueling Division Series a year ago, winning Game 5 on the road.

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