After nearly two months of baseball gone, there still isn't a whole lot of separation among division leaders, especially out West. In the NL West, there is a 3 way tie for first heading into the weekend. The Giants, Rockies and D-Backs all share the lead with the exact same record, and all three teams have been playing .500 ball over the last ten games. Colorado is at San Francisco this weekend in what should be the most exciting weekend series.
While there is still plenty of baseball to be played, (still nearly 2 months before the All-Star break) it would be nice to add a little cushion to the lead and establish yourself as the team to beat in your own division.
In the Central, the Cards, Pirates and Reds have all been playing hot over the last ten games, and Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are both just 1.5 games behind St. Louis. All three teams should still be hot after this weekend as Pittsburgh faces the Cubs, Cincinnati gets Milwaukee, and St. Louis faces the Dodgers. The advantage may go to the Reds this weekend as they are the only home team of the three.
The Rockies and Giants conclude their three-game series in San Francisco Sunday when Matt Cain faces off against Jon Garland. Both have high ERA's this year, Cain at 5.12, and Garland at 5.19. Cain just pitched in Colorado last week where he gave up 6 runs in 6.1 innings pitched, but the Giants still managed an 8-6 win. I don't think Sunday's game will be quite as high scoring, the run total should be under 10.
The Giants are 17-8 at home, and I look for them to win Sunday and win the series to be the sole first place team after the weekend. There is still a lot of ball to be played, but this year it seems as if these early games will really matter a lot towards the end of the season when many teams win the division and wild-card spots by just a game or two.
