NL Wild Card Game Preview: Rockies vs. Cubs

The Colorado Rockies are taking on the Chicago Cubs in the NL Wild Card game to see who will be the final team to make it to the National League Division Series.

The Cubs-Brewers rating in Chicago was only a hair shy of the 8.43 household rating, or about 4,200 Chicago-area TV homes, NBC Sports Chicago averaged Sunday for Game 162's victory over the Cardinals, its highest-rated Cubs game in two years.

In that scenario, the Dodgers win the division and the Rockies play in Tuesday's NL Wild Card game against the Brewers or Cubs. He is hitting.323 in his first season with Milwaukee , locking up the first batting title in Brewers' history.

The Cubs' reliever since the All-Star break was activated from the disabled list Tuesday for the Cubs' 7:05 p.m. loser-out wild-card game at Wrigley Field against the Rockies.

The Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers will meet on Monday to decide the National League West title. The Cubs lost to the Brewers who were crowned the NL Central champions. Both the Cubs and Rockies announced their starting lineups for the winner-take-all Wild Card Game on Tuesday afternoon. The victor will also receive home-field advantage against the NL East champion Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series.

Both teams earned their place in the game with losses in tiebreakers Monday. The win gave the Brewers home field advantage. After finishing off the Washington Nationals on Sunday at Coors Field, the Rockies left for California.

Should they do that, the Cubs will have a great shot to keep their postseason going beyond just one game.
