This is how the Diamondbacks will line up in Wednesday’s Wild Card Game against the Rockies.

The Diamondbacks have a chance to advance to their first NLDS since 2011 with a win over the Rockies in the National League Wild Card Game on Wednesday night. 

Arizona finished with a better record than its division rival and will have the privilege of hosting the game. With temperatures in the upper-90’s, the roof is expected to be closed, so it should be a raucous atmosphere in the desert. 

The D-Backs won the season series, 11–8, though the two teams split their most recent series, a four-game set in Arizona in mid-September. 

Arizona will be without three key contributors—Yasmany Tomas and Nick Ahmed—who have season ending injuries, and Chris Owings, who hasn’t played since fracturing his finger on July 30.
