This is it. The end of the season for one team comes down to a single game for the Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates.

The teams have met 19 times this year, with Pittsburgh holding the edge at 11-8. What's one more game Tuesday night (8:07 p.m. ET, TV: TBS) at PNC Park in Pittsburgh?

In its second year, the Wild Card Game gives two teams an opportunity to advance to the divisional series. It will also be the first time teams from the same division meet in the game.

Who has the advantage in each area? Is there a home-field advantage for Pittsburgh? What about the pitching matchups against the other lineups?

Let's get to the breakdown.
