Dodgers can't shake Padres in NL West race, but Giants falling behind

The Los Angeles Dodgers (27-13) have a half-game lead over the San Diego Padres (27-14) in the National League West going into Monday, while the ruling champ San Francisco Giants (22-18) have actually lost 6 of 8 to fall back into 3rd location.

After getting swept in your home versus the Padres over the weekend, the Giants host the NL East-leading New York Mets for 3 video games beginning Monday night. Those Padres have actually won 6 of 7 and start the week with a series versus the Milwaukee Brewers, who have a three-game lead in the NL Central.

San Francisco just plays the Dodgers and Padres 3 more times each prior to the All-Star break.
