We have the NL Wild Card and this game features two teams who both played on Monday. The Colorado Rockies will make the trip from Los Angeles to Wrigley Field to take on the Chicago Cubs.
The winner of this game will move on to face the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Divison series.
The Colorado Rockies couldn’t get their bats going against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the one game winner take all NL West tiebreaker game and that means they go into this game needing a win or their playoff run will only las one game.
Coming into the game against the Dodgers the Rockies were hot winning nine of the previous ten games and a big reason was just how good the pitching staff has been as of late and all year.
They are currently 20th in team ERA but they also play 82 games a year at Coors Field and if they played basically anywhere else they would have one of the better team ERA’s in the league.
They haven’t announced a starter for this game but whoever does the start needs to pitch well and try to keep pace with Jon Lester.
It was just a few weeks ago that the Chicago Cubs looked to be a shoe in for a division victory and they wouldn’t have to play in the Wild Card game.
After a bad collapse down the stretch of the season and a bullpen collapse in Game 163 against the Milwaukee Brewers they find themselves a must win situation to continue their season.
Jon Lester is on the mound for the Cubs in this game and although he hasn’t been as dominant as years past he is still one of the best pitchers in the league.
He comes into this game with an ERA of 3.32 and an ERA of 18-6. The first inning is very important for Lester in this start.
If he settles in early he will have a great chance to win. It seems if he struggles early he can really fall apart and the Cubs season could be down the drain.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
I think this is going to be quite the battle but I don’t see the Cubs losing two key games in front of their home fans in a row.

I think Lester is going to be lights out again in this game and that will lead to a win in a game that is only decided by a run or two.
