The Rox are riding a 7 game winning streak as they get ready to face the D-Backs for a 3 game set in Denver.  The Padres and Giants continue a 4 game series this weekend, so assuming the Rox can stay hot at home, they should gain ground on someone.  The Giants won in San Diego yesterday, and are 7-3 in their last 10 games, while the Pads are coming off a recent 10 game losing streak.  Could this be the series that takes the Padres out of the race mentally?  Losing the division lead after a 10 game losing streak wouldn’t be good for the psyche of this young team as it attempts to hang on to the division lead down the stretch.
