Rockies Advance on Hug Heard Around the World

RockiesA hug was one of the most most memorable moments from Tuesday night’s National League Wild Card Game between the Chicago Cubs and the Colorado Rockies. In a game that was more pitching duel than hitting factory, it kept everyone on the edge, wondering who will strike first. In the 11th inning, during a force out, Javier Baez accepted his tag fate and hugged Nolan Arenado.

Without skipping a beat, the play shot Rockies manager Bud Black from the dugout, leaving the rest to wonder if Baez had violated the rules. After all, there was the potential for a double play.

The incident ended in a warning to Baez and quickly became ancient history after the Rockies struck gold in the 13th, behind Tony Wolters go-head hit that eventually advanced them to the NLDS, where they will face the Milwaukee Brewers.
