MLB Standings Update: D'backs Grip on NL West Starting to Grow Stronger

As the defending champion San Francisco Giants continue to struggle against sub .500 teams the Arizona Diamondbacks are starting to take off with the NL West. After losing seven straight Arizona has turned it around in a big way, winners of their last six while pushing their lead on the NL West to four games over the Black and Orange.

Luckily it will be a two team race in the NL West as Colorado, Los Angeles and San Diego will be unable to rebound from their poor starts of the season, even as they all are playing much better since the All-Star break (and all just about better than the Giants). The Rox are the closest challengers at 11 games out of first place and may be able to put a good run together to finish above .500, but that would be about it unless both Arizona and San Francisco free-fell through their NL West schedules in September.

As for the Wild Card standings, Atlanta has a stranglehold on the National League, posting a 8.5 game lead over the Giants and 9.5 games over St. Louis.
