Fans gearing up for Diamondbacks vs. Rockies Wild Card game

David Peralta put up three hits and two runs in the Wild Card Game, while Paul Goldschmidt provided a key three-run homer in the first inning that set the offensive tone for the game. I tried to throw a fastball in and it missed by two inches and he leaned into it. Memorable is another. Improbable works, too.

For those who arrive even earlier, several bars and restaurants near Chase Field said they planned to offer specials.

This was an ideal situation for the Rockies, they thought.

The D-backs had not been to the playoffs since 2011.

"I was thinking, 'Please stop right there, '" Lovullo said.

Everyone in the game knows how good these guys are, and how dominant they have been this season. Good job by them.

Rockies: Will be back in Arizona to open the 2018 season on March 29. The Rockies burned through seven relievers and 20 players.

Or maybe it's the argument of who is more terrifying (and capable of supplying the most nightmare fuel) Colorado's Dinger, who menaces opposing pitchers from behind the catcher during games and has to be the only mascot anywhere risqué enough to go bare midriff every night. They were watching on television, from hundreds of miles away. From then on, it was a heavyweight fight. "But here come our guys, fighting like hell throughout the game".

Kershaw will take the ball Friday and try to carry the Dodgers on his back, all the way to a parade. The D-Backs need him to go the distance tonight, he will exactly do. The Rockies were down three runs before they got an out, they almost made up a six-run deficit, and they were all but sunk when the Diamondbacks' best relief pitcher slugged the first extra-base hit of his career. "We took a lot of steps forward as a team this year and that's why we're where we are". On the Rockies side, expect a big game from Carlos Gonzalez, who is hitting.333 off of Greinke in his career with 5 home runs. But who the hell starts the games afterward if you win? "In August, that's when I started talking to this doctor about doing the right thing to get to sleep". Wednesday's game was just that weird and did not follow conventional logic.

The previous pitcher to hit a postseason triple was Dontrelle Willis for the Marlins in 2003.

The Diamondbacks also used likely NLDS game one starter Robbie Ray for 2.3 innings on Wednesday after Greinke's struggles. And, all of that labor was ruined by an Arizona relief pitcher.at the plate. Nobody thought that would happen, but that's the beauty of our game. With two on and two outs and the home team clinging to a one-run lead, Pollock lined a triple to center field scoring J.D. Martinez and Jake Lamb. Although Holland had strung together 10 scoreless outings in his last 12, those results were a bit deceiving, as his command - particularly of his signature slider - remained spotty.

Arizona closer Fernando Rodney came in to pitch the ninth and quickly ended any hope the Rockies had of a comeback.

"We're going to start fresh", Roberts said. There are a bunch of grinders in here.
