Diamondbacks' Batters Glad to be Back Home | June
logo
After a 1-5 road trip to Boston and Detroit, the Diamondbacks are happy to be back home in Arizona. The team now has a 10-27 record on the road, while still having a winning record at home at 17-16. What goes wrong on the road? It turns out that the pitching is equally bad both at home and the road, ranking 15th out of 16th in ERA in both cases. But the offense is where the difference is much larger, ranking #1 in Runs/Game at Home, but only #11 on the road. Let's look at the Home/Road Splits for the NL teams (Stats through Sunday, June 20).
