4 D-backs starters on wild-card roster, Rockies go with 3
PHOENIX (AP) 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.
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.
