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.
