The Colorado Rockies defeat the San Diego Padres 9 - 8 in 13 innings to win the one-game playoff to determine the National League wild card. Matt Holliday scores the winning run on a sacrifice fly by Jamey Carroll, as ace closer Trevor Hoffman blows the 8 - 6 lead which Scott Hairston's two-run home run in the top of the 13th had provided. The Rockies will take part in the postseason for the first time since 1995.
