Tale of the Tape:

Record: Diamondbacks (19-24), Cardinals (22-19)

Offense: Diamondbacks (.266/.324/.446), Cardinals (.271/.343/.465)

Pitching: Diamondbacks (4.46 ERA), Cardinals (3.81 ERA)

The Cardinals have a slight edge on the Diamondbacks in virtually every facet of the game. Arizona’s pitching has been less than impressive, while St. Louis’ has been towards the league-average. The Cardinals offense have been carried by young exciting talent like Aledmys Diaz, Jeremy Hazelbaker, and Stephen Piscotty—three players who will be x-factors in this series. If nothing else, it’ll be fun to see these youngsters in action.
