The San Francisco Giants kept their slim playoff hopes alive for at least one more day after beating the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-2 on Wednesday night at Chase Field.
The poor D-Backs have lost four of their past five and, ugh, 14 of their last 19. Yeah, the season pretty much can't end quickly enough for the home team.
After an off-day today, the Snakes will host the San Diego Padres for three games to wrap up the home portion of the schedule.
The D-Backs are 34-44 at Chase Field and are the only team in the National League West with a losing record at home. Only the Royals, Nationals, and Indians have worse home records.
