This week is a big one for sports in the valley! The Diamondbacks are looking to secure a wild card spot, and the Phoenix Rising will be looking to keep their "Dollar Beer Night" winning streak intact. Don’t forget, your ticket to Talking Stick Resort Arena is also good for a ride to or from the event on light rail! Here are some of this week's events.
