DENVER – It happened. At long last meaningful October baseball will come to the crisp mountain air of Colorado.

For the first time since 2009 the Colorado Rockies are going to the postseason. With their 87-73 record coming into Saturday combined with Milwaukee’s loss the Denver nine have pegged down the second National League Wild Card spot.

The Rockies will play in Arizona in the National League Wild Card game, first pitch is at 6:08 p.m. MT, and will be televised on TBS. The starters in that game are expected to be Zack Greinke and Jon Gray.

The winner of that game will play the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS which will start Friday, October, 6.
