The Arizona Diamondbacks achieved a 5-2 comeback victory over the Milwaukee Brewers in Game 2 of the 2023 Major League Wild Card Series held at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA on the 5th (Korean time). 

As a result, Arizona succeeded in advancing to the division series by earning two wins at once in the best-of-three wild card series. In the division series, they will face the LA Dodgers, first place in the National League West Division and second seed in the postseason. 

Arizona, which secured a ticket to the last postseason by finishing third in the National League Wild Card, continued its last-minute momentum all the way to the Division Series. The day before, they defeated Milwaukee, the 3rd seed and 1st place in the Central Division, 6-3. They gave up 3 runs in the 1st and 2nd innings, but chased down Corbin Carroll’s two-run shot in the 3rd and managed to tie the game with Ketel Marte’s solo shot. And Gabriel Moreno’s counterattack occurred. They won thanks to Christian Walker’s key hit in the 9th inning. Starter Brandon Paat collapsed with 7 hits (1 home run), 1 walk, 4 strikeouts, and 3 runs in 2⅔ innings, but the bullpen’s all-out effort completed the comeback win.

On this day, Arizona’s Jack Gallen, who played the role of ace in the regular season with 17 wins, 9 losses, and an average ERA of 3.47 (81 earned runs in 210 innings), took the mound. However, the game pattern was similar to the previous day. Arizona gave up the first goal and Milwaukee took the lead.

In the bottom of the first inning, Milwaukee had the bases loaded with one out thanks to Christian Yelich’s hit to right, a stolen second base, Carlos Santana’s walk, and Mark Canha’s hit to left, and scored the first run with Sal Frerick’s sacrifice fly to right field. With 2 outs and runners on 1st and 3rd base, Willy Adames took a 2-0 lead thanks to a timely hit. 

Milwaukee starter Freddie Peralta pitched a scoreless pitch until the fourth inning. He overwhelmed Arizona with no-hitter pitching, giving up only one walk until two outs in the fifth inning. But it collapsed in one hit. After two outs in the fifth inning, he was hit by Alec Thomas for his first hit and a solo shot of the chase.

Afterwards, Arizona gained momentum. In the top of the 6th inning, Gerardo Pedromo’s walk and Corbin Carroll’s double gave them a chance to reach 2nd and 3rd base with no outs, and when Ketel Marte’s 2-RBI, timely hit hit, the game turned around to 3-2. Tommy Pham’s right-handed hit gave them a chance to get 1st and 3rd bases with no outs. It continued. Christian Walker hit a ground ball to third base, putting a runner out at home, but José Herrera’s walk continued with the bases loaded with one out, pitcher Abner Uribe’s wild pitch, and Lourdes Gurriel Jr.’s timely hit to left led to a 5-2 lead. Arizona won again. 

Milwaukee had a chance to get on first and second base with no outs in the bottom of the eighth inning thanks to consecutive hits by Christian Yelich and William Contreras. After Carlos Santana struck out, Mark Canha’s hit to right gave him a chance to load the bases with one out. However, a runner on third base was caught at home by Sal Frerick’s pitcher’s ground ball, and with the bases loaded with two outs, Willy Adames was unable to catch up as he only hit a ground ball to second base. Milwaukee’s defeat became increasingly severe. In the end, Arizona succeeded in an upset while maintaining a three-point lead. 

Arizona maintained the team’s victory by allowing starter Jack Gallen, who allowed two runs in the first inning, until the sixth inning, allowing five hits, three walks, four strikeouts, and two runs in six innings. In the batting lineup, Corbin Carroll played a multi-hit game and achieved victory with cohesion by hitting at the right time and in the right place.

Milwaukee, which returned to the fall baseball stage after two years, ended the postseason in vain. On this day, Christian Yelich and Mark Canha struggled with 3 hits, but their cohesion was less than that of Arizona. Arizona will now play the division series against the Dodgers starting on the 8th. This year’s regular season record against the Dodgers is 5 wins and 8 losses. And Meryl Kelly, a KBO League export legend, is likely to start in the first game of the division series. Kelly recorded 12 wins, 8 losses, and an average ERA of 3.29 in 30 games this year. However, he has no wins and 2 losses in 4 games against the Dodgers this year, with an ERA of 3.98.
