The Giants are now 5.5 games up on the Dodgers with 22 games left to play.

The San Francisco Giants (79-61) took two of three games versus the Los Angeles Dodgers (74-67) this past weekend, extending their NL West divisional lead to 5.5

The Giants still have the third best record of all the National League divisional leaders but with their next six games against the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks, San Francisco could make up some more ground.

The Giants also have one final series with the Dodgers left on tap with the team heading to Los Angeles to take on the boys in blue on the last three days of the regular season.

The Dodgers also get the pleasure of a two-game set with the Arizona Diamondbacks but then have to take on the wild card leading St. Louis Cardinals shortly after. With four games against the red birds in Los Angeles, the Dodgers will be looking to make up the 1.5 games back they are in the race for the two wild cards.
