Blind Taste Test

A composite boxscore for a postseason team's pitching looks like this:

4 Games, 35 Innings Pitched

22 Hits (4 2B, 1 3B, 2 HR)

8 Runs Allowed (7 Earned)

34 Strikeouts, 8 Walks (1 IBB), 1 HBP

1.88 ERA, 0.85 WHIP, opponents batting .181/.237/.282

Would you feel good about that team's chances of having gone 3-1 in the best-of-five series? 

Yeah, thought so. The numbers above are a four game average of the Giants pitching since 3 September, the first game of the first road trip of the month. That includes the first two games of the last series at L.A. instead of just the third game that started the OMG teh Selection Bias "Streak".
