MLB Playoffs: Arizona Diamondbacks Will Face Milwaukee Brewers In NLDS

Nothing the Arizona Diamondbacks does tonight matters anymore. The Milwaukee Brewers beat up the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-3 last night. The Brewers held a one game lead over the Diamondbacks coming into tonight, meaning that even if the Diamondbacks win, they'll still be one game behind. The Brewers thus clinched the two seed, meaning they'll host one of the National League Divisional Series. The Philadelphia Phillies will host the other NLDS.

The Diamondbacks found out where they'd be traveling after the Atlanta Braves completed a collapse when they lost to the Philadelphia Phillies in thirteen innings. The loss by the Braves clinched a wild card spot for the St. Louis Cardinals. The Braves would've played the Brewers if they'd won the wild card because divisional opponents are not allowed to play each other in the first round of the MLB playoffs. But St. Louis will now play Philly, and Arizona will head to Milwaukee for Game 1.
