Race To The Finish In The NL West


With the Diamondbacks taking two of the three games against the Giants this past weekend, the Giants are struggling to stay afloat in the race for first in the NL West. The Diamondbacks now lead the NL West by seven games with only 22 games left to play. Interestingly, if the Diamondbacks make it to the playoffs, they will be only the third team to do so after losing over 97 games during the previous season (I’m sure D’back fans haven’t forgotten that last place finish last season!). Of course, with 22 games left, the Giants can certainly make an end of the season run for the title. Take a look at how both teams have faired versus their upcoming opponents.

The Diamondbacks begin a three-game series at Colorado.

The Giants begin a three-game series at San Diego.

Both teams have a winning record against their opponent, but the Diamondbacks definitely have a stronger on the road record. With the pressure on, how do you think the teams will perform? Click on the graphs for a closer look at the stats.
