Giants and Mets go at it tonight, with two of the game's best strikeout artists facing off.

Madison Bumgarner goes for the Giants, with a postseason K/9 rate of 7.8 strikeouts, and a career rate of 8.9 Ks per 9 innings.

Noah Syndergaard takes the hill for the Metropolitans, sporting a career K/9 of 10.4, with last year's postseason run featuring an impressive 12.3 strikeouts per 9.

    1. I see your little asterisks... so in case you mean hitter only, I'll go with Crawford.

    2. You're golden - I was just specifying striking out as the batter versus striking batters out as the pitcher.

  8. heck lets make it fun.

    Giants, total 17, Bumgarner
