The Arizona Diamondbacks walked off on Sunday to beat the Miami Marlins, just a cherry on top of a day in which they clinched the postseason.

By virtue of the Brewers’ and Cardinals’ losses earlier in the afternoon, the D-backs had already clinched their sixth postseason appearance in franchise history before their game had even ended. But it was a nice touch for the now-90-win team that J.D. Martinez’s ninth-inning, bases-loaded base hit secured a walk-off win.

The guys celebrated on the field right away, and in the locker room not long after. Then, they soon returned to the field, scaled the right field wall and jumped in the pool.
