Cubs eliminate Cardinals 2-1 in 11 innings
But inevitability arrived months ago, anticipation forming as soon as they cleaned the confetti off Michigan Avenue.
It wasn't until the third time around in the order that Cubs really got to Wacha.
It was only the second career hit for Davis, making his second career start since being called up from Triple- A Iowa, and his first career RBI.
Otherwise, the two teams will meet in a tie-break match on Monday in NY to determine who will play in the wildcard game, and who will advance to the AL Division Series. Though they fought off the Cardinals and Brewers to the end, the Cubs gained full control with a seriessweep of the Cardinals at Wrigley Field September 15-17 and winning three of four against the Brewers last weekend. He made it look easier than it ought to be to get to the point where he is.
The Cubs weren't exactly wire-to-wire winners, but nonetheless, they'll get a chance to repeat as champions. Once again, the Cubs have done something they haven't done in over a century: their three consecutive playoff appearances is the first time they've accomplished that feat since 1906-1908. The Cubs have won eight of the last 10 meetings and the over-under is 5-4-1.
Nothing came easily all season, nothing went all too smoothly.
Kyle Hendricks, the righthander with the 86 miles per hour fastball but impeccable command, struck out two of the three men he faced in the Cardinals' first.
One big inning put the Chicago Cubs back in the post-season. "St. Louis has kind of owned the division for a few years".
Injuries: TJ Watt (groin) questionable to return
Then again, he was playing against the Saints defense , and the Steelers have a solid front seven that can take the run game away. The Vikings' aggression on special teams didn't come without some regret. "When we scored, I saw the (play) clock go to 40".
Thus waiting another game to make their playoff status official perfectly suited these Cubs.
Rich Hill earned his 12th victory with an impressive seven-inning outing, and Los Angeles clubbed San Diego for the third straight game.
This stretch has been so good for the Cubs.
Wacha (12-9) was chased after allowing the first six Cubs to reach base in the seventh. Hendricks and Lester were instrumental in winning the Fall Classic a year ago, and Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo anchor a unsafe offense.
They have sorted out the postseason rotation - sort of.
The race ended yesterday, the same date (9/27) the Cubsclinched the division title in 2003 when they rallied late to beat the Cardinals 5-1. Kyle Hendricks (7-5, 3.14 ERA) opposes Lance Lynn (11-8, 3.47 ERA).
"It was tough", starter John Lackey said.
Wednesday was the pitchers' duel you may have expected Tuesday between Jake Arrieta and Carlos Martinez. "I know on paper we are, but after a championship season, the studies and stats show that people don't do this".
Defense has shined through two games for Panthers
It's actually bold from a player who spent the first five months of his return to Carolina avoiding saying anything to the media. The latter game was one that they won 9-3 in front of a home audience, a victory that did not include a major score.
