MLB Standings Update: Recent Slide Puts Giants Behind D'backs in NL West

The San Francisco Giants are taking their show on the road as they head down to South Florida to take on the Marlins for a three game set. They will try to shake their recent streak of terribleness in their first meeting with the Fish since the Buster Posey injury at the end of May. For more on the Giants head over to McCovey Chronicles.

To say the San Francisco Giants are having a rough go of it at the moment would be a gross understatement. As winners of only two of their last 13 games and losers of four straight series, the Black and Orange are looking like a far cry from their championship selves of last year, and have gone from holders of a commanding lead in the NL West to looking up the standings at the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The D'backs have been one of the hottest teams in baseball since the All-Star break, winners of their last three in a row and 12 games over .500. The Giants on the other hand have been one of the coldest, even after making big moves at the trade deadline. The gap between the rest of the division has grown into a chasm with Colorado the closest competitor at 10.5 games out of first place. The Dodgers and Padres are even further away, 12 and 12.5 games back respectively.

As for the Wild Card the Giants trail the Braves by 5 games, meaning the G-Men will likely have to win the NL West if they want to make the playoffs as Atlanta doesn't seem to be slowing down any time soon.
