Several former Diamondbacks were witness to Wednesday night's dramatic MLB Playoff games.

Wednesday was a wild day in the MLB Playoffs, and several former Arizona Diamondbacks were a part of dramatic walk-off wins.

A few former Arizona Diamondbacks were on wrong end of those walk-offs. Former manager Buck Showalter, pitcher Joe Saunders and corner infielder Mark Reynolds were involved in the Baltimore Orioles heartbreaking extra inning loss to the New York Yankees. Much to the trios dismay, the Yankees Raul Ibanez hit a pinch hit home run to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth and blasted another bomb in the 12th to walk the Yankees off with a 3-2 win. Reynolds was 1-for-4 on the night.

Former D'backs skipper Bob Melvin fared better in the other ALDS game as his Oakland A's club downed the Detroit Tigers, 4-3, to tie their best-of-five series at 2-2. Ex-D'back's shortstop Stephen Drew was 2-for-4 for Oakland.

Game 4 of the Orioles vs. Yankees series is scheduled to begin at 4:37 p.m. PT, while Game 5 of the A's vs. Tigers series starts at 6:37 p.m. PT.

Both games will be televised on TBS.
