At the beginning of the year, many thought that the NL’s best record would be in the West Division. But few thought it would belong to the San Francisco Giants, who will try to keep things going against the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday.
Giants starter Alex Wood did a good job of limiting overall contact so the opponents at home can only hit 0.192 with 0.76 homers per nine innings. The Giants are 4-2 in his six starts at Oracle Park.
Aaron Nola has been dramatically better than on the road in Philadelphia both this season and throughout his career. He has a 4.99 ERA, 8.6 strikeouts per nine innings, and 0.270 opponents hitting on the road this season, compared to 2.49 ERA, 11.6 strikeouts per nine innings and 0.218 opponents hitting at home beat average.
The Phillies entered the series away 12-21, while the Giants were 22-9 at home.
The Giants are in the top 5 of the MLB on Team ERA, walks per game and both home runs per game hit and the fewest allowed, so Nola and the Phillies will continue to fight away.
