Arizona Diamondbacks v Colorado Rockies
The Colorado Rockies have clinched their first postseason berth since 2009 and will face the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League Wild Card game at Chase Field on Wednesday.
The Rockies sewed up the second NL Wild Card spot after the Milwaukee Brewers fell 7-6 to St. Louis on Saturday. Former Rockies pitcher Juan Nicasio recorded the final out for the Cardinals.
The D-backs have an 11-8 record vs. the Rockies this season and have won each of their last two meetings. Zack Greinke has been announced as the starting pitcher for Wednesday’s game.
Arizona (83-61) are four games ahead of Colorado (79-65) in the NL wild-card race, a lead built when the Diamondbacks won 13 straight, gaining ground with two three-game sweeps of the first-place Los Angeles Dodgers and one of the Rockies.
The winner of the Wild Card game in Arizona will meet the Dodgers in Game 1 of an NL Division Series on Friday at Dodger Stadium. The D-backs also have an 11-8 record vs. the Dodgers this season.
