"This is a great step for Jon", manager Bud Black said. "He would get back up there and compete every single time". "It was a insane game".
Jonathan Lucroy doubled twice, scored two runs and drove in one for the Rockies in their first playoff appearance since 2009.
In 2017, Zack Greinke re-established himself as one of the best pitchers in baseball.
RAY IN RESERVE Hard-throwing lefty Robbie Ray had a breakout season and would figure to start Game 1 against the Dodgers if Arizona advances. "We play 'em all the time", Goldschmidt said. He went 17-7 with a 3.20 ERA, beating the Rockies both in Chase Field and at Coor Field this season, posting a 2-1 record with a 3.41 ERA in five starts against Colorado.
In 1942 they won 104 games and didn't reach the postseason.
Zack Greinke looked like he'd have an easy night after his team gave him a 6-0 lead heading into the top of the fourth, but the former Cy Young Award victor scuffled his way into another bad start.
Gray's loss to Arizona came at Coors Field on September 2, when the Diamondbacks tagged him for three runs and five hits in five innings. It is a really big situation, really a big game. After allowing singles to David Peralta and Ketel Marte to start the game, Gray floated a lazy curveball to Paul Goldschmidt, who clubbed the weak offering into the leftfield seats to give the Diamondbacks a 3-0 lead.
But then A.J. Pollock knocked in two runs with Arizona's fourth triple, this one off closerGreg Holland, as the Diamondbacks scored three times in their half of the eighth to finally put it away.
Again, the Rockies tried to answer and, no surprise, it was Arenado that started it.
Jake Lamb tied an Arizona postseason record with four hits, all singles, and scored three times.
These are the biggest winners and losers from the NL Wild Card Game.
Immediately after Bradley's dramatic triple, Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story responded with home runs, cutting Arizona's lead to one in the eighth. With one out and Peralta on first base after another base hit to center field, Marte lined a 96.8 miles per hour fastball into the right-center gap for an RBI triple, extending the D-backs lead to 4-0 in the second. If Colorado can win this one, they'll have as good a shot as anyone. "Everyone, all of us - there's still room to grow". As the season went on, it kind of just kept getting worse. Blackmon led the National League in hitting with a.331 average. Blackmon's 37 home runs were the third-most by a leadoff hitter, trailing Alfonso Soriano's 38 in 2002 with the Yankees and 39 in 2006 with the Nationals. For one thing, the Major League Baseball regular season is much, much longer than those for the NFL or college basketball - 162 games versus sixteen and a maximum of 31, respectively. He's at the end of a seven-year, $80 million contract, but the Rockies have a plethora of outfield options and have seemed in no rush to offer a new deal to their longtime star.
"I think the innings and experience gained, you can't purchase, you have to live them", Foster said.
"The thing I like about it the best is it has a really nice batter's eye".
