A little-known backup catcher turned out to be the hero in Tuesday night's NL Wild Card Game between the Chicago Cubs and Colorado Rockies.

On Monday, the Cubs were defeated by the Milwaukee Brewers for the NL Central division crown while the Rockies were taken down by the Los Angeles Dodgers for the NL West title. Starting pitchers Cole Hamels and Kyle Hendricks were also on the wild-card roster. The result was Colorado's first postseason win since the 2009 NLDS against the Philadelphia Phillies.

"In 2015, we were winning the wild-card game no matter what", Rizzo said. Three straight soft singles with two outs in the top of the 13th inning.

Of course it wasn't, and wild was only the tip of the iceberg of adjectives one could use to describe the Rockies' 2-1 win that spanned two days and almost five hours (an actual historically long postseason contest) and shaved unknowable years off all of our lives.

Just like that, the season comes down to a final game, and October is only two days old.
