Why you should back the Giants
Third baseman Wilmer Flores has superb hands and bat speed with the ability to push the ball to all gaps on the field. Flores showcases his ability to make consistent contact, in part to his great pitch recognition skills. The 30-year-old is a versatile defender who can play all over the diamond. Flores is batting .251 with 16 home runs and a team-leading 56 RBI.
Outfielder Mike Yastrzemski is a natural batter with good awareness at the plate who is able to make solid contact due to his smooth, line-drive swing. Yastrzemski can also play any outfield position with ease with at least 400 career innings at all three spots. The 31-year-old currently has nine home runs, 38 RBI and his 20 doubles are tied for the team lead.
Why you should back the Dodgers
First baseman Freddie Freeman is a phenomenal hitter with power to all parts of the field. The six-time All-Star is also an exceptional defender and good gloveman. Freeman is third in the league in batting average (.328), and seventh in OPS (.945) with 15 dingers. In the first game of the series, he went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI.
Shortstop Trea Turner is a pure batter who has outstanding speed and hitting upside. Turner can hit for contact with ease as his 19-game hitting streak is the longest active one in the majors. The two-time All-Star has been a constant run-producer, ranking third in the NL in both RBI (75) and batting average (.309), while also belting 17 homers.
