September Pennant Drive, the Final 25: Padres vs. Dbacks

By Scott Allen

The Arizona Diamondbacks have made it to September.  They have a six game lead on the San Francisco Giants.  Now it is time to take a look at the final 25 games in the Dbacks attempt to win the National League West.  Returning home from the six game road trip, the Dbacks will once again face the San Diego Padres at home.  It will be a four game set.

The Dbacks just got done sweeping the Padres at home.  Winning four next weekend at Chase Field though will be a tall task, even against the last place Padres.  I still think they will win three of four.  The Dbacks have finally figured out how to beat their divisional opponents on a more consistent basis.

Prediction: Dbacks win three of four and go to 85-62
