Tale of the Tape:

Record: Cardinals (10-8), Diamondbacks (10-10)

Offense: Cardinals (.271/.352/.485, 2nd in NL in runs scored), Diamondbacks.262/.318/.450, 5th in NL in runs scored)

Team ERA: Cardinals (3.63, 5th in NL), Diamondbacks (4.15, 7th in NL)

The two teams are comparable in nearly every facet of the game, yet the Cardinals seem to edge them out numerically. St. Louis has a similar roster structure as Arizona, relying heavily on youthful offense. Just like the previous two, this series is shaping up to be fun to watch.
