3B Nolan Arenado, who leads the National League in RBIs and is arguably the best defensive player at his position in the majors, departed the Sunday game in San Diego with either a sprain or a bruise to his right hand. After the game, Rockies manager Bud Black said the third baseman's right hand "was swelling up during the game." Losing the All-Star for any time this week could be a severe blow to the playoff hopes of a Rockies team already in a bit of an offensive funk. He is listed as day-to-day, and Arenado said he expects to miss one game. "I think I sprained the hand," said Arenado, who has bruising on the inside of his right palm. Arenado sustained the injury when he was jammed by a slider from Padres RHP Luis Perdomo in the third inning, resulting on a soft line drive to third base. He remained in the game for one more at-bat (a ground ball) and was able to throw the ball across the infield.

RHP Randall Delgado (elbow) will have a platelet-rich plasma injection Thursday in an attempt to promote the heading of his flexor tendon, an injury that was diagnosed by team physicians two weeks ago and confirmed by Dr. James Andrews. "It sucks, but it is the best thing," Delgado said. Minnesota RHP Bartolo Colon and former Arizona RHP Rubby De La Rosa are among those who took the treatment. "We want to get him healed as quickly as possible," manager Torey Lovullo said. "The idea is that he will be ready for spring training."

SS/OF Chris Owings (finger) will be considered as a possible pinch runner for the NL wild-card game. "For me, it's very intriguing," manager Torey Lovullo said. "He is one of our best baserunners. If it is something we have, we ought to take advantage of it." Owings, third on the team with 12 stolen bases despite playing only 97 games, is not expected to be able to play the field until perhaps the NL Division Series, the team said last week, because the fracture in his right middle finger has not healed. He has missed the past 50 games and is eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list Friday for the first of a three-game series at Kansas City that concludes the regular season.

"It's just special," Corbin said, drenched in postgame champagne. "All the hard work, it's such a long year, there are so many hours dedicated to this. We want to do this four more times."
Mon Sep 2504:56RF J.DJ.D. Martí

Martinez assured Arizona of home-field advantage in the Oct. 4 NL wild-card game with his walk-off single Sunday against Miami.He has 27 homers and 58 RBIs since being acquired from Detroit on July 18, and included was the 18th four-homer game in major league history. "They've embraced me from the moment I came in," Martinez said. "I said it from the moment I came here: I am just trying to jump on your guys' train. This isn't it. It gets better. Every one gets bigger. Every one gets more celebration, more bottles. From the day I got here, they've been talking about making the playoffs and doing something that hasn't been done in a while."

He struck out nine, walked three and also singled and scored the first run of the game. The strikeout total was his third highest of the season. "When you get out there, you have a feel for what's working," he said. "Really just trying to keep these guys on their heels as much as possible. Fortunately I had all my pitches going."
