Three Takeaways From The SF Giants Series Against The Baltimore Orioles
2. The SF Giants offense needs to find consistency
At times, the SF Giants look like they have one of the most potent lineups in all of baseball, with a great blend of rookies and power hitting veterans, but as we saw in the Orioles series (2, 4 and 3 runs), they need to find some consistency in a hurry.
On the season, the Giants are ranked No. 17 in all of baseball offensively, boasting a team average of .247, and while their improvements have come since the arrival of Patrick Bailey and Casey Schmitt, along with the return of Mitch Haniger and Michael Conforto, there's still plenty of room for improvement.
In their past 10 games, the Giants have averaged 5.6 runs (with a 15 and 14 run performance mixed in), which is enough to win plenty of ball games, but until they can find the consistency to maintain that level, this is a team that will struggle to keep up with Arizona and Los Angeles in the NL West division race.
