  • Louis Cardinals plunk Anthony Rizzo in first at bat

The Cubs, meanwhile, will take on the Nationals in the NLDS. The Cubs were in luck as they were in second place in the division. On this day, John Lackey and Michael Wacha were a battle of heavyweights. The only run he allowed scored when Paul DeJong singled home Jedd Gyorko in the second inning.

The Cardinals are four games behind the Colorado Rockies, who hold the second National League wild-card spot with just three to play. "We embrace that and we're going to go with that for as long as we can".

St. Louis, which went 5-14 against its rival, missed the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time since 2007 and 2008.

This season, the Chicago Cubs came in as World Series Champs, something they have not done since they headed into the 1909 season. It just happened to be here.

The Dodgers have 102 victories this season, tying the 1962 and 1974 teams for the most since the franchise moved to Los Angeles.

Schwarber singled off Matt Bowman (3-6) with one out in the 11th to start the winning rally.

Cubs: Baez was back in the starting lineup. You never know if it's your last one, ' " Lackey said.

Six Cubs relievers combined for three scoreless innings. Dexter Fowler tied the game at one apiece in the bottom of the sixth with an RBI ground out. Still, there was an argument to be made that the series loss was an isolated incident, and the Cardinals future remained bright.

"I assume people aren't picking us to win the whole thing", Epstein said. The only Cardinals player with more all-time is Lou Brock (95). "It always is. But we've got the potential and the capability to get by those teams". "Our season is not over".

Looking forward to the NLDS, the Cubs will face a Washington team with Bryce Harper, Daniel Murphy, Ryan Zimmerman, Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. One teammate seems to think so. "I don't really care about the Nationals".

Luis Severino pitched six effective innings, and NY blasted three homers in the sixth inning to defeat Tampa Bay.

Taylor Davis took advantage of his fifth appearance of the season by hitting a two-out, run-scoring double in the 11th. The Toronto Blue Jays went back-to-back in 1992 and 1993, and the New York Yankees won three World Series in a row between 1998 and 2000. But every last bit of postseason hope came crashing down Thursday night.

Cardinals: RHP Carlos Martinez (12-11, 3.63) is 1-1 in four starts this season against the Cubs with a 4.26 ERA.

ATHLETICS 6, MARINERS 5 Mark Canha hit a game-ending home run in the ninth inning to lead host Oakland past Seattle. Lackey ends up escaping the inning with only down that lone run.

As Eamus Catuli reset to zero in November, a sense of fait accompli accompanied every playoff discussion about the Cubs since, so much so that you wondered whether winning a division title would produce a celebration or a shrug. But the Twins locked up an AL wild-card spot later in the evening when the Angels lost to the White Sox.

First up is figuring out the playoff rotation as well as locking down a postseason roster.

Josh Bell hit his 25th homer, and Gregory Polanco added a solo shot as Pittsburgh defeated Baltimore.
