What army had the troop advantage in General Sherman's drive into Georgia in 1864?

As Union General William T. Sherman drove his forces into Georgia in 1864, he had the advantage in troop numbers. Sherman commanded three Union armies led by generals Thomas, McPherson and Scofield. The former two armies were the Army of the Cumberland and the Army of the Tennessee. The latter army was led by General Scofield.Sherman had 100,000 troops under his command versus Confederate Joseph Johnston who led 60,000 troops. Sherman clearly had a 10 to 6 advantage. Sherman's advantage was hampered by the fact that Johnston was fighting a series of defensive battles in the Southeast.
