The San Francisco Giants are 7-3 in their last 10 games, 45-35 overall, and standing in first place in the NL West. Things look good for the team at the moment, especially in light of their shutout sweep in a recent three game series against division rival Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers are only one game behind, though, and it will be hard work keeping that momentum as the season enters the stretch.

The Giants next start a three game series at the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, then play three games against the Pirates in Pittsburgh before returning home. Complete NL West standings are below, and standings for the entire league can be found at SI.com.
