Defense and pitching put you in the conversation. Offense is execution of fundamentals and key hits, whether they be hit/run singles, extra base hits, and so on.
The Giants don't have a lot of LTP. But they make contact and get the hits needed to win. The Dodgers can keep spending, but they need to prove that they can get it done when the chips are down.
