When the Diamondbacks sent their best player packing during the offseason, many saw the move as signaling the beginning of a rebuilding effort out in Arizona. As baseball's first month wraps up, it appears that this is not the case. Arizona looks to close April firmly in contention in the National League, and they have the added benefit of being able to announce their presence during a seven game divisional homestand to close the month.

Thursday night's homestand opening victory over the Rockies pushed the Diamondbacks into a tie with the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants for second place in the NL West at 13-9. If Arizona can take two of the three remaining games in the series, they can finish the weekend no worse than tied with the Rockies, who currently lead the division.

Despite the Diamondbacks fast start, there are still plenty of deals to be had on tickets throughout this homestand. While Arizona's average home ticket price this season checks in at $71.10, every single game of their April-closing seven game homestand carries an average ticket price under the season average.

The most expensive game of the weekend series against Colorado is Saturday evening's contest, at an average price of $52 dollars. Despite being the priciest game of the weekend set, Saturday's average ticket price is still 27% below the season average. The least expensive game of the series is Sunday's matinee, at an average of $43 dollars. This game is also the least expensive game of the entire seven game homestand. Both weekend games currently have tickets available for as little as $13 dollars.

Rockies @ Diamondbacks (Avg/Get-in)

  • Friday, April 26th: $47/16
  • Saturday, April 27th: $52/13
  • Sunday, April 28th: $43/13

While next week's opening series against the San Francisco Giants prices a slight bit higher than the Colorado series, tickets are still quite inexpensive when compared to the Diamondbacks' season average. The series opening game on Monday evening has the least expensive tickets available, with some as cheap as $9 dollars. Monday's average price of $56 dollars sits firmly between that of Tuesday's game, the least expensive of the series, and Wednesday, the most expensive. Tuesday carries an average price of $53 dollars, while Wednesday checks in at $59 dollars.

Although Wednesday's game against the Giants is the most expensive of the homestand, fans can still catch a great matchup against the defending World Series champs for a 20% discount relative to the home game season average. With the Diamondbacks appearing to be competitive in the NL East, this series represents an opportunity for an early season bargain on tickets.

Giants @ Diamondbacks (Avg/Get-in)

  • Monday, April 29th: $56/9
