Re: Postseason Scoreboard watching....
I think Kc61's prognosis -- get some more contact hitters -- is correct. But I think the strikeout discussion is a distraction.
The Reds had 69 more HR's than the Giants. But the Giants scored 49 more runs.
Yes, OBP carries the difference (.327 to .315). But the Reds and Giants had almost the exact same number of walks. (Also the Reds had 18 more HBP).
The difference is hits, a 118 fewer than the Giants to be precise.
