Far out in the Wild Card race and even farther out of first place in the NL West, the Arizona Diamondbacks are likely relegated to a spoiler role for the remainder of the 2012 MLB season. Tuesday night the D-backs can put a hurting on the Los Angeles Dodgers' playoff chances, as Arizona kicks off a two-game set in Los Angeles that is the last meeting of the season between the two teams.
The Diamondbacks (69-72) send Ian Kennedy (12-11, 4.39) to the mound. The Dodgers (74-67) hope that Clayton Kershaw (12-8, 2.79) will keep the Arizona bats quiet and keep L.A. at most a game out in the Wild Card race. Arizona is six games out of the Wild Card and 10 games behind San Francisco in the NL West.
