The Arizona Diamondbacks will play seven games over the next eight days. They will host the Philadelphia Phillies and visit the Miami Marlins.
The Arizona Diamondbacks have cooled since their hot start, but are attempting to turn things around. They're only 3-7 over their last 10 games and this coming week, they will wrap up a home stand and begin a fresh road trip. The good news for the D-backs is that the two teams they'll be facing this week have losing records heading into Monday. The bad news is that both teams may be beginning to heat up.
First up for the Diamondbacks, the Philadelphia Phillies will come to town on Monday to kick off a three-game series. The Phillies are in last place in the NL East and the D-backs catch a couple of breaks with the vaunted Philadelphia rotation. They'll miss Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique injury.
Monday and Tuesday's games will begin at 6:40 p.m., while Wednesday's getaway day will have its first pitch at 12:40 p.m.
Arizona will have Thursday off, as they hit the round and kick off a four-game series against the Miami Marlins on Friday. The Marlins have been playing much better at home, holding a 5-2 record at their new stadium, as opposed to being 2-6 on the road.
Friday and Saturday's games will begin at 4:10 p.m., Sunday's game will be at 10:10 a.m. and next Monday's finale will begin at 9:40 a.m.
