Diamondbacks Clinch Spot in NL Wild Card Game with Cardinals, Brewers Losses

Diamondbacks Clinch Spot in NL Wild Card Game with Cardinals, Brewers Losses”

Arizona clinched a Wild Card berth on Sunday, and will likely host the National League Wild Card Game.

For the first time since 2011, the Arizona Diamondbacks are headed to the playoffs.

Although advancing from the wild-card spot has become tougher in recent seasons with one loss enough to end a season, the Diamondbacks will enter October as one of the hottest teams in baseball. The earliest possible return for Owings would be the NL Division Series.

A throwing error by reliever Justin Nicolino (2-3) on Kristopher Negron's sacrifice bunt helped load the bases with no outs in the Arizona ninth.

Diamondbacks: Arizona continues its final regular-season homestand Monday night when RHP Zack Godley (8-8, 3.20 ERA) pitches against Giants RHP Johnny Cueto (7-8, 4.49).

Phillies 2, Braves 0 • Nick Pivetta outpitched Luiz Gohara in a matchup of rookies, Mikael Franco homered and Philadelphia won the season finale in Atlanta.

DETROIT - Jorge Polanco hit a solo homer in the first off Buck Farmer (4-5), Eduardo Escobar welcomed Victor Alcantara with a three-run drive in the sixth and Minnesota completed a four-game sweep, outscoring Detroit 39-12.

Bautista's last home game in Toronto ended with a 9-5 win over the Yankees.

Jose Berrios (13-8) won for the first time since he beat the Chicago White Sox on August 30, allowing two runs and five hits in six innings.

LOS ANGELES - Clayton Kershaw (18-4) became the NL's first 18-game victor, pitching shutout ball until Mac Williamson's home run in the eighth, his final inning.

Orioles 9, Rays 4 • Crowd favorite J.J. Hardy homered and scored twice in what was probably his final game in Baltimore.
