Home Stretch Schedule Favors D'backs in NL West

According to Sean McAdam, the NL West schedule doesn't help the Dodgers down the stretch:

NL West: In the Division That Nobody Wants To Win, there isn't much room or margin for error.

The Diamondbacks and Dodgers will play head-to-head in the final weekend of August (in Phoenix) and in the first week of September (in LA); after that, they're on their own.

The split after the final meeting favors the D-backs, who will play 10 on the road and 10 away from home while the Dodgers have just six home games among their final 19.

All the more reason why we have to win now, baby.

With the D-Backs playing "10 on the road and 10 away from home," you'd think the advantage would go to the Dodgers who actually have a home game. Oh well.
