St Louis qualified for the post season in 2012 as a Wildcard team on the strength of an 88-74 record a season ago while competing in the National League Central division and finishing second behind champion the Cincinnati Reds. The team looks to erase the memories of a poor offseason in the 2012 year as the club blew a 3-1 lead in their series against the San Francisco Giants by dropping the next three games to get eliminated from the playoffs. In their three losses St Louis pushed across just one run total against Giants pitching. Ian Kennedy the Diamondbacks starter on Opening Day concluded play during the 2012 season with a record of 15-12 in his 33 starts with an ERA of 4.02 in 208 1/3rd innings of work. Arizona looks to improve upon a third place finish in the National League West as they finished play with an 81-81 record in the 2012 season. The Diamondbacks went 41-40 last year in their home ballpark.
