Both of these teams have enough talent to power a deep postseason run, and this series could impact their playoff positions. The Padres in particular must keep pace in the wild card race just to stay in the postseason picture.
The Padres were swept by the Dodgers in their last series, which put a dent in their playoff aspirations. The Giants have won seven straight games, including three-game sweeps of the Rockies and Cubs.
In Monday's series opener, the Giants will be start Dominic Leone (3-3, 1.48 ERA) on the mound, while the Padres will start Yu Darvish (8-9, 3.95 ERA).
