The Colorado Rockies are the National League champions and are heading to the World Series after beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4.
Matt Holliday's three run, 452-foot shot into the pine-filled rock pile in center field capped a six run outburst in the fourth inning.
Colorado now has a record eight days' rest before opening the World Series at either Cleveland or Boston on October 24. The Indians lead the ALCS 2-1.
The wild-card Rockies joined the 1976 Big Red Machine as the only teams to start a postseason with seven straight wins. Colorado has won 10 in row overall and lost only once since September 16th.
Colorado had been just one strike away from postseason elimination on the final weekend of the season.
