First base is the first split between the Rox and Brew Crew.
Some places are advantage: Brewers, some are advantage: Rockies. It seems a fairly even split but one of the areas with a larger gap is first base.

While there is not really a defensive argument the offensive converse is where the problem lies. Jesus Aguilar has had a break-out season for the Crew with 35 home runs and hitting equally well between righties and lefties (doubling down on his offensive threat).
Ian Desmond, on the other hand, well…..didn’t. He hit .236 with baseball’s highest ground ball rate. Desmond has warmed lately and is still capable of contributing to this series offensively but the Brewers are just have a deeper offense than the Rockies.
The Rockies bats have been doing fantastic lately and they will need to keep it up if they hope to topple the Crew.
