As the World Series commences, the Diamondbacks will rely heavily on Zac Gallen – their 28-year-old right-handed ace with an outstanding 17-9 record and 3.47 ERA – who also was honored as an NL All-Star Game starting pitcher – as their go-to option for relief pitching duties. He has proven his abilities this postseason even allowing six home runs over 22-plus innings of work.
For the Arizona Diamondbacks, SP Tommy Henry may make his comeback following an elbow injury sustained during the National League Championship Series (NLCS). Overall, Arizona ranked 17th in OPS and 14th in runs scored during regular season play while on the other hand, Texas Rangers excelled greatly, ranking third overall with both categories combined.
Arizona’s Incredible Playoff Run
As we consider both teams during this playoff run, it becomes apparent that the Diamondbacks have faced and overcome formidable opponents during this playoff run. They comfortably advanced past the Brewers, Dodgers, and Phillies before engaging in an epic seven-game National League Championship Series against them. Their performance has been steady but not dominant; their 51 total runs rank them fourth among playoff teams while Ketel Marte led with 19 hits and an outstanding.358 batting average. Their pitching staff posted an outstanding 3.23 ERA over 106.0 innings pitched against them.
Texas Rangers, on the other hand, are searching for their first World Series championship since franchise history. Even after dropping three of four home playoff games during this postseason run, they remain determined to make history and finish the regular season by playing a 50-31 home record and possessing an ERA of 3.67 which ranks fifth among postseason teams. Adolis Garcia provided the highlight for Texas in Game Seven against Houston Astros by hitting two home runs and driving in five runs to lead an 11-4 road win against them.
In their opening World Series match-up against the Diamondbacks, the Rangers will likely rely on 30-year-old lefty Jordan Montgomery – an accomplished lefty who holds an outstanding 10-11 record and 3.20 ERA – as their starting pitcher. He has shown great promise this postseason by pitching 25 innings while only allowing 6 runs while striking out 17 batters in 25 innings of work.
Texas’ Impressive Playoff Series
On the flip side, Texas has embarked on an impressive path to the World Series, defeating both Rays and Orioles with impressive victories – two sweeps over each opponent, then engaging in an exciting seven-game ALCS clash against the Astros. Texas’ offense has been highly productive as they led in postseason RBI (67), runs (71), and hits (113). They even managed to rank second for homers (22). Yet their pitching staff ranked fifth overall with 99 hits given up throughout this postseason (average postseason ERA of 3.67). Adolis Garcia led this effort with 17 hits (7 homers and 20 RBI while Evan Carter managed six doubles so far in this postseason alone.
