The San Francisco Giants just dropped three of four to their Bay Area rival Oakland A’s. They’re now a game behind the Los Angeles Dodgers for first in the NL West. While at one point the Giants were looked at as the best team in the majors, they’re now behind several teams with a 50-42 record, and a modest + 16 run differential. But the San Francisco Giants schedule gives them some good news. The Arizona Diamondbacks – arguably the worst team in the league – travels to San Francisco for the final series before the All-Star Break. Giants tickets are averaging $63.59 for a 32 percent price drop.
