Watch the moment the Rockies found out they'd clinched a postseason spot

Before first pitch of Saturday's Dodgers-Rockies game at Coors Field, something special happened for the home team ... but it didn't involve anything on the field of play.
Thanks to the Cardinals coming from behind to beat the Brewers, 7-6, the Rockies officially clinched a postseason spot as the second NL Wild Card team.

This same situation became reality for the Twins (as they clinched the second AL Wild Card spot) just a few days before, and the Nationals when they clinched the NL East on Sept. 10.
