It was the same group of players who were a good attacking team in the first half of the season.

It’s not just road games. In general, the exit speeds and energy numbers have decreased along with several other offensive metrics. Over their last 68 games through Monday, the Giants have finished last in the major leagues in terms of batting average, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage.
