NL Wild Card Contest Gives us Gray and Greinke

Arizona will counter with Zack Greinke, 17-7 with a 3.20 ERA making his 10th career playoff start.

The Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks played 19 times this season, twice more in spring training.

Outfielder Gerardo Parra played six seasons for the Diamondbacks (787 games), batting.278 with 73 homers, 41 triples and 233 doubles. Game 1 is Friday night in Los Angeles. You'll need to log-in with your cable or satellite info to access this content. Will it be the Rockies, or the Diamondbacks? The Colorado Rockies' drought was two years longer: prior to tonight their last playoff game came on the night Ryan Howard memorably told his teammates "get me to the plate, boys" at Coors Field in 2009.

In fact, Gray has the potential to be the Rockies version of 2014 Madison Bumgarner, who carried the Giants on his back to a World Series championship. My goal in life is to one day write a Batman screenplay.

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo is looking forward to what Wednesday night brings: "A couple of guys were wondering why the fans weren't here early in the season and when were they going to start showing up". I've seen him add to that belief and that trust in himself.

Despite throwing just 110.1 innings, Gray was far and away the Rockies' most effective starter.

"Finally, I talked to my agent, talked to a lot of people, to figure out how we're going to attack the problem".

"For me it's just a reminder that I'm not invincible", Bradley said. "He's been a really good pitcher for years". Arizona is paced by J.D. Martinez (1.066 OPS, 45 HRs, 104 RBIs), Paul Goldschmidt (.966 OPS, 36 HRs, 120 RBIs) and Jake Lamb (.844 OPS, 30 HRs, 105 RBIs).

For a number of people, it was pretty hard to make out that Petty was born and brought up in Gainesville , Florida. The band became Mudcrutch , which soon transitioned in Los Angeles into Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers .

Goldschmidt got things started with a three-run home run in the first, while Descalso connected on a two-run home run in the third inning to stake the D-backs to a 6-0 lead, knocking out Rockies starter Jon Gray (0-1) in the process.

For the Rockies, Jon Gray will be getting the start. Sure, you have a young hot-shot starting your do-or-die game.

Both teams have MVP candidates.

Greinke has been tough at home in 2017, posting a 13-1 record and a 2.87 ERA, but he's posted a 2-1 record and a 3.41 ERA against the Rockies this season.

The win leaves the Diamondbacks with some questions about how to structure their rotation for the divisional series, having used both Greinke (3.2 innings, 58 pitches) and fellow starter Robbie Ray (2.1 innings, 34 pitches) tonight. In September, he hit.404 with 16 home runs and 36 RBIs in 24 games. So I'll go out there and do my best.

"I don't think it's a benefit or advantage to either team".

Marte became the first player in D-backs franchise history to record two triples in a postseason game.
