It's astonishing just how much the Giants have exceeded expectations this year. They've been very average to put it mildly the past five years. Their even year magic of the last decade stopped after 2016 which just so happens to be the last time they made the playoffs. It would take a catastrophic and unexpected collapse for them to miss the playoffs again this year. The last two years they finished third in the NL West and that seemed like a reasonable spot for them to finish this year.
This division was supposed to be all about the Dodgers and Padres duking it out for the division title. Their still amazing with only four games separating these three teams for the top spot. It wouldn't be surprising if three playoff teams came out of this division. If the season ended today, the Dodgers and Padres would claim both NL Wild Card spots. As for the divisions other teams, the Rockies traded their best player Nolan Arenado for pennies on the dollar and the Arizona Diamondbacks weren't supposed to change the world but they weren't supposed to be this bad as they've sustained a lot of injuries and are already 29 games behind the first place Giants.
San Francisco has not only catapulted themselves to the top of their division, but they were the first team in the majors to 50 wins. They're doing it by a very similar formula that led them to all those World Series titles at the beginning of last decade. That is all to say they're doing it on the backs of their phenomenal pitching staff. Their team ERA is an incredible 3.25 down from 4.64 last year. Tonight's starter is the epitome of that pitching excellence. He has a 1.49 ERA and has allowed more than one earned run in only three outings this season.
The Dodgers will be sending out there ace for this game as well in Walker Buehler. He hasn't been as dominant in years past but it's hard to criticize a guy who is still great with a 7-1 with a 2.51. They'll have to pitch better in this one even though the Dodgers eked out a win in the first game on Monday. The Giants had eleven hits but only managed to score two runs. Look for the Giants bats to come in more clutch and maintain their division advantage against their most hated rivals. The rivalry is restored once again.
