The Arizona Diamondbacks continue to fight their way up the standings in the NL West. They just have a long way to climb.

The Arizona Diamondbacks get exactly what they need right now - a shot at the division-leading Los Angeles Dodgers. Their three-game series starts a week that ends with a visit from the Milwaukee Brewers.

The D-backs have won three of their last four games, all of which were on the road before heading home for six games. They sit 9.5 games back of a dominant Dodgers team (28-13) and a Giants (21-20) team that has won three of their last four games. The San Diego Padres' (16-26) improvement has moved them past the struggling Colorado Rockies (15-25) who have lost their last four games.
