Rockies' Playoffs Run Could Last One Game and That's F*cked Up

"I don't think you could predict that game coming into this scenario, with the way Jon Gray has been pitching, and the way Zack Greinke has been pitching, and who Zack Greinke is, " manager Bud Black said. "But Rule No. 1: You've got to be ready for anything".

First pitch was scheduled for 5:08 p.m., which likely means fans and commuters will be on the road at the same time.

Offensive matters: As usual, the Coors Field-aided Rockies led the NL in runs scored, with an average of 5.09 a game.

Expect a big game from David Peralta, who is hitting.462 off of Gray in his career. With one out and Peralta on first base after another base hit to center field, Marte lined a 96.8 miles per hour fastball into the right-center gap for an RBI triple, extending the D-backs lead to 4-0 in the second. However, Goldschmidt has yet to get a hit off Gray in just 11 at-bats.

On the mound for the Rockies is righty Jon Gray. Greinke is a veteran that has pitched in 9 postseason games with a respectable 3.55 postseason ERA.

"Statistically speaking, that doesn't happen very often", Blackmon said. Colorado is led by the duo of center fielder Charlie Blackmon and third baseman Nolan Arenado, both in the race for NL Most Valuable Player award.

For the first time this season, Greinke was unable to complete at least four innings.

On Tuesday, New York Yankees starter Luis Severino lasted less than an inning after allowing three quick runs against the Minnesota Twins. The Rockies scratched out one last run off Rodney, but it wasn't enough.

On paper, Wednesday's matchup with the Diamondbacks appears favorable for the Rockies. And now, they have the chance to play themselves into the Division Series round of the playoffs with a one game showdown in the desert. Inducing flyballs and keeping pitches low will be essential for Greinke, who does not want to get in a jam with such a high-octane offense that can produce from their leadoff to the ninth batter. In baseball, I think that we're all adrenaline junkies. 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. Reliever Scott Oberg limited the damage by retiring Goldschmidt and J.D. Martinez. Descalso has career three postseason homers.

Marte became the first player in D-backs franchise history to record two triples in a postseason game. It's Game One of the NLDS.

"ARE YOU KIDDING!?!" @Dbacks relief pitcher @ArchieBradley7 with a 2-run triple!

Here is a regular-season statistical comparison of the teams the Dodgers could face, and a look at the Dodgers' previous postseason performances.

The team has gotten a reputation for having some of baseball's better dishes and it planned to roll out a few special items for Wednesday's game.

There are great hitters galore available for tonight's game, but the following are the best bet from a fantasy standpoint.
