Tale of the Tape:

Record: Diamondbacks (12-18), Atlanta Braves (7-20)

Offense: Diamondbacks (.260/.320/.444, 4th in NL in Home Runs), Braves (.224/.292/.289, 15th in NL in Home Runs)

Team ERA: Diamondbacks (5.00, 12th in NL), Braves (4.84, 11th in NL)

The Diamondbacks’ offense has been astronomically better than that of the Braves. That being said,  so has every offense. The Diamondbacks’ pitching, consisting of 2015-standouts Zack Greinke and Shelby Miller, has been less than impressive, even in comparison to the young Atlanta pitching staff.
