The Colorado Rockies have clinched their first postseason berth since 2009 and will face the Arizona Diamondbacks in the National League Wild Card game at Chase Field on Wednesday. That game will begin at 5:08 p.m. Arizona time.

The Rockies sewed up the second NL Wild Card spot after the Milwaukee Brewers fell 7-6 to St. Louis on Saturday. Former Rockies pitcher Juan Nicasio recorded the final out for the Cardinals.

The fans trickling into Coors Field before Colorado’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers let out a roar after the final out. The game was shown on the scoreboard.

The D-backs have an 11-8 record vs. the Rockies this season and have won each of their last two meetings. Zack Greinke has been announced as the starting pitcher for Wednesday's game.

The winner of the Wild Card game in Arizona will meet the Dodgers in Game 1 of an NL Division Series on Friday at Dodger Stadium. The D-backs also have an 11-8 record vs. the Dodgers this season.
