ESPN2 will host Tuesday’s Wild Card Game 1 between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Milwaukee Brewers, with first pitch set for 7:08 p.m. ET at American Family Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Rookie Brandon Pfaadt (3-9, 5.72 ERA) will get the ball for Arizona in his postseason debut, while the Brewers turn to Corbin Burnes (10-8, 3.39) after Brandon Woodruff was ruled out for the series with a shoulder injury.

The Brewers enter as -180 favorites on the moneyline at DraftKings Sportsbook, with Arizona at +150. The run total is set at 8.

Milwaukee has released their lineup for tonight’s game, so let’s take a look at how they’ll line up against Pfaadt.

No Rowdy Tellez in the lineup tonight, with Carlos Santana occupying first base and Mark Canha — who had an excellent September for Milwaukee after coming over from the Mets at the deadline — serving as the DH and batting cleanup. Rookie Sal Frelick gets the nod in center against a righty while Garrett Mitchell sits and Tyrone Taylor will play right. (Yankees fans, please don’t pay attention to the fact that Josh Donaldson is starting in a playoff game.)
