Catching an Arizona Diamondbacks day game might have gotten a little easier this Wednesday.

Scheduled for a 12:40 p.m. first pitch, The D-backs will take on the St. Louis Cardinals from Chase Field with the exclusive broadcast set to be played on YouTube TV.

The Cardinals, who have already clinched a spot in the 2019 MLB Playoffs, will send Michael Wacha to the mound to face Merrill Kelly for the D-backs.

YouTube has broadcast 13 games this season as its featured Game of the Week and this will be the second time the D-backs are featured in a broadcast.

The D-backs and Rockies were featured about a month ago on Aug. 21 with the Rockies a 7-2 winner.

St. Louis was also featured against the Dodgers on Aug. 7 as part of the Game of the Week partnership.

The broadcast is free to watch on YouTube through MLB’s YouTube channel and does not require an account.

Wednesday’s contest originally wasn’t part of the MLB/YouTube package but was quickly confirmed as the 14th and final game to be broadcast on the outlet for the 2019 season.
