The Arizona Diamondbacks swept the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium earlier in the week and have clawed their way back into the division race. Arizona has the best run differential in the division (+44), ahead of the Dodgers (+5) and Giants (-3). Arizona heads to Philadelphia to battle the Phillies, while the Giants head to Coors Field to take on the Rockies.
