As the 2017 regular season finished, the Colorado Rockies finished third in the National League West. A normal place for the Rockies to finish, however, their 87-69 record stunned the MLB world and claimed the second Wild Card.
They will be returning to the postseason for the first time since 2009, as it’s time to get those Rocktober shirts out of the closest.
It was not an easy ride to claim the second wild card spot as they were challenged by the Brewers in the last weeks of the season.
The leaders of this team included Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon who both recorded 37 home runs while Arenado totaled 130 runs batted in. Arenado brought in the runs while Blackmon got on base with his .331 batting average.
Colorado’s pitching rotation changed throughout the season as they will be leaning on pitcher Jon Gray to get the job done in Arizona. Gray finished the regular season with a 10-4 record with a 3.67 ERA and 112 strikeouts.
This is a huge opportunity for Gray to showcase why he deserves to be number one in the rotation. Gray holds a record of 2-2 against Arizona this year.
The Arizona Diamondbacks will be going up against division foe Colorado Rockies as they locked up their home field by claiming the top wild card spot thanks to a 93-69 record.
One of the reasons why they hold such a high winning percentage is due to their 52-29 record at home this season. The leader of the group, Paul Goldschmidt led the D-backs with 36 homers, 120 RBI’s and 73 extra base hits.
However he was not the only one to succeed, as J.D. Martinez found his new home with the Arizona Diamondbacks. After being traded from Detroit, Martinez hit 29 home runs and 65 RBI’s.
Another slugger on the team was Jake Lamb who helped out with his 30 home runs and 105 RBI’s on the season. Arizona has the offense, but do they have the pitching?
Ace Zach Greinke will get the nod for the start on the wild card game as he enters the postseason with a 17-7 record with a 3.20 ERA and 215 strikeouts. Greinke is also very familiar with Colorado.
In his career, Greinke holds a 9-5 record, 3.93 ERA with 148 strikeouts against Colorado.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks MLB Prediction:
Both teams can put up insane amount of runs on the board, but this game will come down to pitching. I’m a little worried about backing Gray on the road as Greinke has been light’s out at home.
