UNDATED (AP) Today's baseball action gets started in the same venue that hosted yesterday's postseason opener. Colorado snatched home field advantage in the best-of-five National League Division Series with a 4-2 win at Philadelphia.

The Phillies send 10-and-4 Kyle Kendrick to the mound in hopes the rookie can help them even things at a game apiece. The Rockies will go with 3-and-2 Franklin Morales.

The Diamondbacks and Cubs play Game 2 of their NLDS tonight in Arizona, where the home team won last night's opener 3-1. Doug Davis versus Ted Lilly is the pitching matchup.

A pair of 19-game winners will toe the rubber tonight in Jacobs Field for Game 1 of the American League Division Series between the Indians and visiting Yankees. The home team is going with C.C. Sabathia hile New York hands the ball to Chien-Ming Wang.

The wild-card Yanks went 6-and-0 against the Central Division champs during regular-season play.

The junior circuit's other first-round matchup resumes tomorrow in Boston, where the Red Sox blanked the Los Angeles Angels 4-zip last night in Game 1 of their first-round postseason series.
