The D-backs will face the Brewers in the NL Wild Card Series with Arizona turning to rookie righty Brandon Pfaadt on the mound in Game 1 in his first-ever playoff game.

The 2011 National League Division Series rematch will feature squads with similar roster depth. However, the Diamondbacks have a slight edge when it comes to offense in terms of OPS. The two lineups have produced a similar number of home runs in the season -- Milwaukee with 164 to Arizona's 166.
