True. Giants only hit 103 HR's vs. 163 for Detroit. (Yankees led the majors with 245.) Giants, however, did lead the majors in triples (57), while the Tigers were 4th (39).

Giants actually hit better for average over the season than the Tigers (.269 vs. .268) despite playing in the NL. Tigers made up for that with a team ERA of 3.75 vs. 3.68 for the Giants, despite playing in the AL.

Giants seem to be better at stringing hits together to produce runs, and while their starters aren't quite as strong as the Tigers, they make up for it with a much better bullpen. The longer the series goes, the more I believe it favors the Giants.
I want my $2.

Obligatory 2017 attendance record: 0-1 (5-3 loss to Oakland on 6/25)

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.
