September Pennant Drive, the Final 25: Pirates 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.  Now moving on to the last homestand of the season and it starts with the only non-NL West series the Dbacks have left, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Dbacks struggled a little in Pittsburgh earlier this summer.  I give them a good chance to win two of three though at home against a team that was in the thick of things a month ago and saw it all fall apart in one week.  One very bad week.  Dbacks might take all three here, but I’m only inclined to think they win two at most.

Prediction: Dbacks win two of three, will be 91-65
