And you wouldn't believe who got in on all the fun for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Rockies saw their season come to a close in a hard-fought wild-card game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field on Wednesday night. "This was an incredible game". I don't think I'm going to be feeling that nervous. In fact, Gray has the potential to be the Rockies version of 2014 Madison Bumgarner, who carried the Giants on his back to a World Series championship. But even if they do, we'd love for the play-in game to be sent packing. In 2009, Reynolds led the National League with 44 home runs, but he also struck out a major league-record 223 times. The teams will also showcase two top NL Manager of the Year candidates: the Rockies Bud Black and the Diamondbacks Torey Lovullo.
They might not have to - at least not right away.
Or maybe it's the argument of who is more terrifying (and capable of supplying the most nightmare fuel) Colorado's Dinger, who menaces opposing pitchers from behind the catcher during games and has to be the only mascot anywhere risqué enough to go bare midriff every night.
It was that kind of insane night in the desert as two NL West foes slugged it out. Sure, one game to decide anything after an arduous 162-game season doesn't really feel right, but does it play up the "wild" part of the Wild Card? As the season went on, it kind of just kept getting worse. Martinez. In just six career at-bats against Gray, Martinez is hitting.333 with two home runs and four RBI's.
Because the Yankees defeated the Minnesota Twins 8-4 last night, a rapid exit for the NY crew is now off the table.
If Kershaw can deliver that magic this October, he would be bucking an emerging October trend, the one in which starters pitch roughly half the postseason innings. They put together a four-run fourth inning against Zack Greinke. He's got power stuff, hard fastball and breaking ball with depth to it to the back foot of right-handers. "So we are looking at a pitcher with the potential to be a very good pitcher for a very long time". "Nolan Ryan, Sandy Koufax, Tom Seaver; some of those guys", Rockies general manager Jeff Bridich said on Tuesday. Lucroy went to third on a wild pitch before Ray fanned Ian Desmond. However, Greinke is 13-1 with a 2.87 ERA at Chase Field this season.
Over the past two months, Gray holds a 2.45 ERA over 66 1/3 innings, striking out a batter an inning in that span. Since he began throwing a slider, he's 10-1 with 2.60 ERA in 14 games.
