PODCAST: Previewing the NL Wild Card Game: Rockies at Diamondbacks

Arizona and Colorado split 10 games at Chase Field this season. Not only did he have a great comeback year and go 17-7 with a 3.20 ERA, but he also faced Arizona five times this season and was 2-1 with a 3.41 ERA in those starts. Greinke has made five starts against Colorado in 2017, going 2-1 with a 3.43 ERA and 37 strikeouts over 34 1/3 innings.

Leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon (1.000 OPS, 37 HRs, 104 RBIs, 14 SB) helps lead the Rockies, while Nolan Arenado (.959 OPS, 37 HRs, 130 RBIs) and Mark Reynolds (.839 OPS, 30 HRs, 97 RBIs) also contribute heavily.

Below is all of the game information for what should be a classic showdown. As Rockies manager Bud Black said: "There's no secrets here". I think that's going to be the hardest thing for everyone, both sides. "That was just my mindset, and that's my mindset going into this game too".

Paul Goldschmidt has terrorized the Rockies in the past but is 0-for-11 against Jon Gray?

Here is a regular-season statistical comparison of the teams the Dodgers could face, and a look at the Dodgers' previous postseason performances. Should the Diamondbacks beat the Rockies, it would add a 93-win team to the fold, bringing the grand total for all divisional teams to 773.

Gray is 2-1 with a 3.50 ERA in three starts against the Diamondbacks.

Red Sox lefty Chris Sale makes his first postseason appearance when he starts against Astros righty Justin Verlander in Game 1 of the AL Division Series at Minute Maid Park. He has pitched well in pressure games and seems to even enjoy them. "This year it worked out good from the beginning, and just kind of continued". I've seen so many good players leaving this house. Martinez. In just six career at-bats against Gray, Martinez is hitting.333 with two home runs and four RBI's. "It really just comes down to just doing it". "Every year you're going to have numbers; big years, OK years, down years".

Soon, I will join the rest of Diamondbacks nation at Chase Field for pregame ceremonies, team introductions, the national anthem and the most anticipated moment - first pitch. They outscored the Rockies 101-69 and took five of the seven games the two teams played in September. Francona said part of his decision is so he can use his best pitcher - Kluber - in a potential Game 5. Having played each other so often this year, there should be no surprises, but in a one-game playoff with a Game 7 feel, anything could happen. Given how the Rockies usually finished at or near the bottom of the barrel in team pitching prior to this year, that kind of number to come from a starting pitcher is nearly unheard of. There's nothing quite like a wild card single elimination game, especially when it involves two clubs from the best division in baseball.

First pitch for tonight's game is at 8:09 Eastern time and the game can be seen on TBS.
