Chicago Cubs vs. Colorado Rockies, wildcard game, the Cubs have a tough game ahead against the Rockies, it will not be easy to win against the Rockies at home, the visitors lost against the Dodgers in the division, but that game really was not worth much to them. At home the Cubs record is strong, but the history against the Rockies is not so good this season, at the beginning of May the team played a series against them and the result was negative for the Cubs.
Colorado Rockies: We want to win.
The Rockies are still struggling to make the playoffs, it was not easy to lose to the Dodgers 5-2 for the title of the division, but they also had to play against the Cubs for the wild card. Before this series and before the loss against the Dodgers, the Rockies had won a difficult series against the Diamondbacks, but the team continues with a low average of runs on the road, 4.09 runs and the defense is allowing up to 4.16 to the home team . The key point of this night will be the work from the mound, since from there the Cubs will be controlled and the difficult offensive they have had this season.
Kyle Freeland is the best option the Rockies have to win in Chicago, he is the best pitcher with a record of 17 wins and 7 losses with 2.85 ERA. Freeland has played the best season in his short career as a professional, just two years with the Rockies, last season closed the year with 11-11. On the road Freeland has a record of 4 wins and 1 loss in the last five games, the last loss was against the Cardinals, and their most recent victory in the last game of the series against the Diamondbacks.
Chicago Cubs: This is our house.

The Cubs know what it is to fight at home to win, the season did not start well for them at home with 6-4 in the first 10 games in April, but they managed to recover and win games so that the record became positive throughout it’s from the season. Against the Rockies played a single series between the end of April and the first two days of May, the series lost 1-2.
Jon Lester already knows what it is to win a game against the Rockies this season, the only victory of the series was thanks to the work of Jon Lester against Kyle Freeland on April 30, the game won 3-2, it was a heavy match, but Lester did everything necessary to prevent the Rockies from scoring more runs.
