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.

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.

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.

Can anybody slow down J.D. Martinez?

For the second week in a row, Martinez captured NL Player of the Week honors. This instance marks his fourth weekly award of the season, the first time any player has claimed that many since MLB began naming weekly award winners in 1973 (1975 in the AL).
