Colorado left-hander Kyle Freeland will face Arizona ace Zack Greinke on Monday at Chase Field as the Rockies and D-backs open a four-game set with heavy National League Wild Card implications.
The Padres and D-backs meet Saturday in the second installment of their three-game set at Chase Field. The Padres took the first game to end the D-backs’ franchise-best 13-game win streak. Arizona will send out left-hander Zack Godley, while San Diego counters with right-hander Jhoulys Chacin.
Arizona’s club-record 13-game winning streak — a stretch during which the D-backs swept National League West-division foes San Francisco, Los Angeles (twice) and Colorado — came to an end Friday night in a 10-6 loss against the Padres.
After nine straight games against the Dodgers and Rockies, and prior to another four-game set with Colorado, the D-backs open a three-game series against the Padres on Friday night at Chase Field. Arizona’s Patrick Corbin faces off with San Diego’s Jordan Lyles in the pitching matchup.

With the D-backs riding a franchise-record 12 straight wins and the Dodgers mired in a six-game rut, Arizona and Los Angeles will wrap up their season series on Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium, but it might not be the final time these seemingly postseason-bound teams see each other.
If you think the Diamondbacks are worried about stacking up to the Dodgers, should they meet in October, then remember what J.D. Martinez did in the fourth inning on Monday night. And the seventh inning. And the eighth inning. And, oh yes, also the ninth inning.
The D-backs and Dodgers resume their rivalry on Monday in Los Angeles less than a week after the D-backs swept a three-game series in Arizona. It was just the fourth time since 1961 that a team going into a series 50 or more games over .500 was swept. The season series is tied at eight […]
In the midst of their 10-game winning streak, the D-backs have excelled at passing and picking up the baton to string together moments that add up to victories. In a three-game set in Coors Field, the starting pitching was no different, turning in an historic succession of starts, capped by Zack Godley’s three-hitter over six […]
First things first. If it isn’t the D-backs’ mantra, it ought to be. Arizona has scored at least one run in the first inning in five straight games.

The D-backs and Rockies send two of their strong young starting pitchers to the mound for the finale of the three-game set with big National League Wild Card implications at stake.
