It's October, which means it's finally time for playoff baseball. The Arizona Diamondbacks are set to host the Colorado Rockies in the National League Wild Card game Wednesday night starting at 8 p.m. ET.

The first pitch is at 8:08 p.m. 

Aces Jon Gray (10-4) and Zach Greinke (17-7) will take the mound for the Rockies and the Diamondbacks, respectively. Gray has a 3.67 ERA with 112 strikeouts, while Greinke has a 3.20 ERA with 215 strikeouts. Gray has faced the Diamondbacks three times this season and is 2-1 against them. Greinke has faced the Rockies five times, going 2-1 with two no-decisions. 

The Rockies earned their first postseason berth since 2009 this year finishing third in the competitive NL West at 87-75. With star Nolan Arenado leading both at bat and on the field, plus a strong rotation, Colorado has had an up-and-down summer after starting the season strong. 

The Diamondbacks have been competing with the Rockies all year for second place in the NL West after the Los Angeles Dodgers sealed up first early. Arizona finished 93-69. 

The two teams split the last four-game series against each other in mid-September. 

The winner of this game will play the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS, starting Friday.
