Posted: Updated:

Two teams that used to call Tucson home every spring are set to face off tonight in a winner-take-all showdown and a right to take on the LA Dodgers in the National League Playoffs.   The Arizona Diamondbacks will host the Colorado Rockies in downtown Phoenix.  News 4 Tucson's Ari Alexander will be lie from Phoenix on News 4 Tucson at 4 p.m.  The first pitch is set for just after 5 p.m.   News 4 Tucson will have complete highlights at 10 p.m. 

Here's more from the Associated Press:

The Arizona Diamondbacks have put four of their five starting pitchers on the roster for Wednesday night's National League wild-card game against the Colorado Rockies.
    
In addition to the game's starter Zack Greinke, left-hander Robbie Ray, a 15-game winner, will be in the Arizona bullpen along with fellow starters lefty Patrick Corbin and right-hander Zack Godley. Taijuan Walker was the only Diamondbacks starter not on the roster.
    
The Rockies will have two starters in their bullpen - left-hander Tyler Anderson and right-hander Antonio Senzatela.
    
Both teams went with 10 pitchers. That means nine relievers and seven reserve position players for each team.
    
Shortstop Chris Owings, out since late July with a fractured finger and described earlier as a longshot by manager Torey Lovullo, did not make the Arizona roster.
