NLDS pitching match-ups

Lots of talk is always made of a team that carries momentum into the playoffs. Pitchers usually have the biggest impact on a game, so I was curious to see what the recent trends have been with both team's pitchers. Here's what I pulled for each scheduled starting pitcher in their last 28 days (via BR):

 

 

Pitcher ERA IP K BB Respective H/R ERA split for year

 

Lincecum 1.67 27 32 7 3.69

 

Cain 2.91 34 27 4 2.93

 

Sanchez 1.26 28.2 33 18 2.86

 

 

Lowe 1.17 30.2 29 3 4.3

 

Hanson 1.99 31.2 22 6 3.22

 

Hudson 5.58 30.2 22 14 2.48

 

Hudson hasn't faired so well lately, but his home splits are good so it works out for ATL that he's pitching game 3 at home. I didn't realize that Sanchez has better road splits, so that works in favor of the Giants.

For game one, Lowe's splits in favor of the Giants (small sample size, etc.):

 

  • Night time game
  • On the road
  • Demuth as umpire
  • 6+ days rest

 

And Lowe's splits not in favor of the Giants:

 

  • Lowe's ERA this year at AT&T Park

 

Any way I slice it, runs seem like they'll be tough to come by for either team. Looks like more torture is on the horizon, I just hope we're on the right side of it.
