21. San Francisco Giants (8-11) A sweep of the Dodgers could be just what the doctor ordered for the Giants, as they were in desperate need of a jump start. Madison Bumgarner delivered against Clayton Kershaw, as the Giants won two separate 3-2 games against the Dodgers. They split against the Rockies as the rubber game was postponed. We will see if that sweep of the Dodgers was for real, as the same pitching matchups will take place to start this week again, just this time in Los Angeles not San Francisco.

20. Miami Marlins (8-11) The Marlins have responded extremely well from the four-game sweep the Mets handed them last week. They are on a five-game winning streak, tied for longest in MLB. A sweep of the Nationals is impressive at anytime, as they have dominated on the mound during the streak, giving up two runs or less in every game. The improvement of the pitching staff has been coincided with the offense finally putting things together as well. Giancarlo Stanton has continued his coming around at the plate, hitting three more homers this week.

19. Cincinnati Reds (8-10) The Reds had a disastrous road trip that was semi-salvaged because they got to face the freefalling Brewers and took three of four games. That is the only positive thing the Reds have going for them in the win-loss column, as they have lost every series since the season opening sweep of the Pirates, getting swept twice. Joey Votto though continues to put up MVP numbers, putting the struggle filled 2014 behind him, already reaching hitting as many home runs in 2015 as he did last season.
