The Padres just completed their longest homestand of the season. They've also completed half of their total home games. As you know the Padres have been notoriously bad in Petco Park, so on their return they had to prove that they could win there. Before the 11 game homestand started it seemed that the consensus was that they needed to go 7-4 if they had any chance of getting back into the race. They ended up going 5-6. The results weren't as bad as past homestands but not as good as they would have liked.

The Padres did bring up first basemen Anthony Rizzo who has provided a welcome distraction for fans who have watched the team dwell in the cellar all year, but with the team now 8 games out of first their odds of getting back into the race are dwindling.

As of now it appears that the race for the NL West is a two horse race with both the Giants and DBacks creating a gap between themselves and the rest of the teams.
