The story of two different offenses
Even though the Cardinals are in a much better place than the Rockies in the playoff hunt, the Rockies offense has been much better.
The Cardinals, in fact, only have one player (Marcell Ozuna) with an OPS+ above 110. In the month of August, the Cardinals are hitting .245/.319/.380. They are also only averaging 4.4 runs per game in that span. Overall, the Cardinals offense has been at about that level all season as they are hitting .244/.316/.404 on the season.
The Rockies, on the other hand, have hit .300/.359/.510 in the month of August and they have averaged 5.3 runs per game. Overall, the Rockies are hitting .270/.329/.460 with 5.3 runs per game.
Considering how the two pitching staffs are also a bit different, it will be interesting to see if we see these offensive trends continue this weekend or not.
We also did a podcast about the upcoming series with the Cardinals. We also talked about the legend of Tim Melville, the starting rotation, bullpen, recent injuries, and what we expect to see in the near future with the Rockies so you can check it out below.
