D-Backs Return to Postseason

(PHOENIX) Well, the National League Playoffs will have some snakes in it.

In particular, Diamondbacks.

For the first time since 2011, the Arizona Diamondbacks will be in the postseason.  Their spot in the NL Wild Card game was clinched when both the Brewers and Cardinals lost.

And for good measure, J.D. Martinez provided the walk-off hit with a single in the bottom of the 9th inning for a 3-2 win over the Miami Marlins.  Dan Straily struck out nine in six innings for the Fish, but the D-Backs got a run in the 8th, then the winner in the 9th.

The Wild Card game will be played at Chase Field on October 4th and ASN Arizona will provide coverage for it.
