Giants going for 4-game sweep of slumping D-backs

The San Francisco Giants will send ace Madison Bumgarner to the mound Sunday afternoon as they try to complete a four-game sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix.

The Giants have gone from one game behind the D-backs to two up on them in the National League wild-card chase. The D-backs have lost four straight games overall and are 4 1/2 games back of the second wild-card spot, with four contenders ahead of them.

"We have been playing in this area of the standings for a long time," Arizona manager Torey Lovullo told reporters. "Do I sense any more urgency than we've already had? No. If I say one thing to the guys, it's that we're in a one-game playoff every single day."
