The Colorado Rockies lost the National League West Tiebreaker Game 5-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday afternoon in Los Angeles.

Hear from inside the clubhouse as Rox Pile Co-Editor Kevin Henry caught up with Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black, stars like Charlie Blackmon and Nolan Arenado and tomorrow’s starter Kyle Freeland.

On the podcast, Jake Shapiro of Rox Pile breaks down what cost the Rockies their first NL West crown and what kept it in the Dodgers hands for the sixth straight season.

Dodgers’ young pitching star Walker Buehler is discussed thoroughly as his efforts were what they’ve been all season and powered the LA club.

The Rockies did hit two home runs late in the game in back-to-back fashion from Arenado and Trevor Story. What did that mean both individually and for the team?

“Shap” previews the National League Wild Card game and what he thinks the key is … and why the Chicago Cubs at 95 wins aren’t as good as you think.

The game at Wrigley Field will start just after 6 p.m. Mountain time on Tuesday and will feature Freeland and Jon Lester on the mounds.

Last season, the Rockies lost in the NL Wild Card game to the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix and were bounced without hosting a playoff game. That could be very detrimental to the franchise should that happen again.
