Fighting for first place in the National League West, the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers enter what could prove to be a fateful week in the race, both facing NL division leaders before meeting for a weekend series in San Francisco.

The Giants host the Milwaukee Brewers for a four-game set to start the week while the Dodgers welcome the Atlanta Braves for three games with an off day before the NL West showdown begins Friday.

The three-game series at Dodger Stadium will be the last time the Giants and Dodgers meet in the regular season.

San Francisco holds a 2½-game lead heading into Monday, with both teams having dropped two of three games over the weekend – the Giants in Atlanta and the Dodgers at home against the Colorado Rockies.
