The last couple games have been an embarrassment offensively. Only the pitchers should be allowed champagne.

I sure hope not. Taking my boys to the game. Hoping for the clincher (or back into a WC spot if Cubs and Reds both lose).
Had a great time at the game with my boys. Too bad the Dbacks lost 1-0. Great on the mound but pitiful at the plate. Thanks to the St. Louis Cardinals for beating the Reds 15-6 after losing 19-2 the day before. Go figure. Tonight's game was an excellent pitchers' duel with great defense - but not much at the plate from either team. Backing in isn't great but it beats missing the playoffs entirely. Cubs have to be kicking themselves after seeing the Dbacks fold up offensively these last few games.

Baseball is a cylindrical game. You score 15 runs in one game and can't score after that. It happens all the time. Very Weird.

I’m just glad we are in. I hope the team doesn’t have that mentality.lol

What a ride it’s been.

I think the game 1 starter depends on how the bullpen gets used today. If the pen gets a little rest, then Pfaadt would be ok to start game one and give Gallen an extra day.

I got a case of whatever the diamondbacks had yesterday. I’m celebrating them getting into the playoffs!! Wooooo grilling some food.

Brutal lineup for what will likely be a brutal day. Looks like the Dbacks will go into the playoffs on a 4 game losing streak, after getting swept at home by the Astros. Hope the Dbacks can score some runs, but they are already down 2-0 in the top of the first before even recording an out.

Well, the Dbacks were certainly the best medicine for the Houston Cheaters. From WC2 to Division Champion in 1 day - thanks to the Dbacks.
