D-backs looking to play better at home in Game 3
Monday, October 3, 2011
PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Diamondbacks rallied all season to get into the playoffs. They need a big one now that they're there.
Trailing 2-0 in the NLDS, the Diamondbacks are hoping to pull off another big comeback to get back into the series against the Milwaukee Brewers in what should be a raucous atmosphere at Chase Field on Tuesday night.
The Brewers won the first two games at home by combining small ball with the brawn of Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun. The Diamondbacks need to find some way to slow them down or it will be a real short return to the playoffs.
Rookie right-hander Josh Collmenter starts for Arizona in Game 3 against Milwaukee right-hander Shaun Marcum.
