D-backs get clutch win, to host wild-card game

J.D. Martinez lined a two-out RBI single to deep left field with the bases loaded in the ninth inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Sunday to clinch the top wild card in the National League.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Congrats to the Diamondbacks for not only clinching a playoff spot, their first since 2011, but clinching home-field advantage for the wild-card game when J.D. Martinez delivered the first walk-off hit of his career. Martinez's incredible run with Arizona means he could some down-ballot MVP love. In 57 games with the Diamondbacks, he has 27 HRs and 58 RBIs while slugging .734.

NL wild-card race keeps tightening

After losing five of six games, the Rockies' playoff odds are essentially a coin flip, by FiveThirtyEight's measure. The Brewers are just a game back after Saturday's win, while the Cardinals aren't out of it despite losing to the Pirates.

Diamondbacks outscore Marlins 13-11

Chris Iannetta homered twice and drove in a career-high eight runs and the Arizona Diamondbacks outslugged the Miami Marlins 13-11 on Friday night.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Chris Iannetta has a career-high eight RBI tonight. He is the only player with multiple seven-RBI games this season and joins Jonathan Lucroy (2012) as the only catchers with multiple seven-RBI games in a season in MLB history. 15 of his 42 RBI have come in two games.

How to fix the Diamondbacks' biggest problem

For Arizona, it's Archie Bradley and a whole bunch of question marks in the bullpen. At least one of Taijuan Walker or Patrick Corbin will be left out of the playoff rotation and could become a potential solution.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Dodgers avoided an embarrassing four-game sweep in Philly with a 5-4 win, cutting their magic number to one. The Diamondbacks are off tonight, so the Dodgers can clinch the NL West on Friday with a win at home against the Giants or a Diamondbacks loss to Miami. Other magic numbers: Yankees: 3 (to clinch wild card) Diamondbacks: 4 (to clinch wild card) Red Sox: 8 (to clinch AL East) Cubs: 8 (to clinch NL Central)

Just dingers for Martinez

J.D. Martinez hit a game-tying two-run home run in the sixth inning in the Diamondbacks' 13-7 win over the Padres on Wednesday. Martinez's homer was his 25th since joining Arizona on July 19. He is the ninth player in major league history to hit 25 or more homers for a team after playing for another team earlier in the season, and the first to do so since 1999, when Tony Batista blasted 26 long balls for the Blue Jays after he was acquired from the Diamondbacks on July 18 of that year.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

The Dodgers had a chance to clinch the NL West on Wednesday, but instead suffered a third straight loss to the lowly Phillies, who will go for the series sweep on Thursday. The Dodgers are 5-20 over their past 25 games and their magic number remains at two. The Red Sox did clinch at least a wild-card spot with their win and the Angels' loss. Other magic numbers: Red Sox: 8 (to win AL East) Cubs: 8 (to win NL Central) Yankees: 3 (to clinch wild card) Diamondbacks: 4 (to clinch wild card)

Can Iannetta continue hitting in the 2-hole?

Chris Iannetta might be the most unlikely No. 2 hitter on a playoff team. But at 34 years old, he's hitting better than he has in years, especially against lefties.

Rockies' wild-card grip slipping?

Arizona is all but locked into a spot, but Colorado has opened the window after being in position all season. FiveThirtyEight's metrics give the Brewers about 3-to-1 odds to claim the final wild-card berth, with an outside chance for the Cardinals to sneak in.
