• Cubs and Diamondbacks playoff type atmosphere

    Jul 22, 2008 9:50 AM by Adam

    The Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks both lead their respected divisions and with a three game series that started yesterday, fans know what to expect in the next two days. Chase Field is always electric, but for this series the voltage has been turned up and a lot.  This is a potential preview for a playoff matchup as both these teams met last year in the postseason as the D-Backs got the better of the Cubs with a sweep.  This isn't the same team from 2007 though, several new faces has the first place Cubs as one of the best teams in baseball and the team with the best record in the NL. Tickets went fast for game one as the Diamondbacks managed to beat Rich Harden in a game that featured great pitching and defense. Since this is in fact a weekday series tickets are not impossible to come by, but fans who wait to long may find themseleves missing out on an experience much like the playoffs, with over 40,000 excited fans following every minute of the action. With the second half of the 2008 season just getting underway, this is a great test for both teams as this will be the last time they meet before a potential playoff matchup.
