Colorado Rockies vs Arizona Diamondbacks in NL Wild Card

Diamondbacks coach Ariel Prieto

The victor of the NL Wild Card game goes on to face the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of the five game National League Division Series that begins on October 6.

RAY IN RESERVE Hard-throwing lefty Robbie Ray had a breakout season and would figure to start Game 1 against the Dodgers if Arizona advances.

Light, a former collegiate pitcher, talks about Gray's mindset prior to his first-ever postseason start, and the pair decide whether the Rockies' most-expensive free-agent acquisition - 1B/LF Ian Desmond - should even start this important winner-take-all battle.

The Arizona Diamondbacks host the rival Colorado Rockies in the NL Wild Card in Wednesday MLB.

"One game I kind of remember was St. Louis in the playoffs when I was with L.A.", Greinke said.

"The thing I like about it the best is it has a really nice batter's eye. But for me, personally, where we are right now, we're in a really good spot", Colorado closer Greg Holland said. Arizona has been a risky team because they can win just on offense or just on pitching.

Bud Black feels optimistic about having Gray on the mound: "He's feeling good about where he is". He managed the Padres for 8½ seasons from 2007-2015 and was the 2010 NL Manager of the Year, but he never took them to the playoffs. Four were quality starts, and the other was two outs short. "It's very big, bigger than most parks", he said. "The guy obviously has a great track record. He's a guy I used to watch on TV so it's very, very surreal". "We love these moments".

The Diamondbacks signed Greinke to a six-year, $206.5 million contract before the start of last season. Martinez is the first player in major league history to finish with 45 homers in a season of fewer than 120 games.

Greinke said that no matter what happens on Wednesday he knows he did all he could to prepare.

"His intelligence, ability to game plan, his command, his stuff - there is a reason why he was signed here and he's definitely fulfilled that", Hazen said. The "happy to be here" factor should be pretty low, however, as both teams started the season strong and looked to be on a postseason trajectory well before the All-Star break. He hit six home runs with 16 RBIs, with a.377 average and a team-high 1.250 OPS. Lovullo, however, said he wouldn't hesitate to use Ray for an inning or two in the wild-card game if needed. "The Miami game was bad". There are always adjustments being made.

The affable Gray, just 25, is not the face of the franchise. That's why they call it the Wild Card. But Gray managed it and also won 10 games, and he would have won more had he not missed two-and-a-half months with a stress fracture in his foot.

Zack Greinke went 17-6 with a 3.20 ERA this season, and was 13-1 with a 2.87 ERA at home. In either case, their bullpen should be better than Arizona's, which could lead to an interesting facet of the game-with the home team needing to score early in this one-game format. "It makes you realize that one pitch or that one swing or that one play can make the difference between making the playoffs or not". "He would get back up there and compete every single time". During yesterday's broadcast, the pair became absolutely exasperated at criticism of the format, which has been driven in recent days by the fear that the New York Yankees - a wild card squad in the American League - might be eliminated too quickly for the nation to truly get to know new star Aaron Judge, who set a new rookie home run record with 52 moonshots.

Veteran Jeff Mathis, who caught most of the ace over the season, is coming off a hand injury. And if you don't (execute), you know, the hitters are going to make the pitchers pay. Thrown to Chris to a while now and we're working good.
