Tale of the Tape:

Record: Giants (18-18), Diamondbacks (17-19)

Offense: Giants (.263/.342/.407 5th in the NL in runs), Diamondbacks (.267/.326/.455, 4th in the NL in runs)

Pitching: Giants (4.20 ERA), Diamondbacks (4.68 ERA)

San Francisco and Arizona’s offense have been strikingly similar thus far this season. Neither team has a big bat that carries the team; rather they have contributors throughout the entire lineup. Neither of their pitching staffs have held up to their hype, as they both have a higher ERA than Phillies, Padres, and Marlins.
