The San Francisco Giants are home for the next seven games, including a three-game series with the division-rival Arizona Diamondbacks to start the week before finishing it with a visit from the Chicago Cubs.
The Giants need a good showing against the D-backs as they continue to chase the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers (32-15) and still sit 7.5 games back. The D-backs are chasing the Giants for that no. 2 spot and are three games back of the Giants after winning two straight. The Colorado Rockies (17-29) have lost two straight games and the San Diego Padres (17-32) are back in last place after dropping their last three.
