The Disappointment Zone

Musings from a Cleveland sports fan

Interesting fact

Posted by disappointmentzone on 30 July 2006

The Indians have given up 559 runs through the fourth inning of today’s game against Seattle. 203 of those runs have been scored in innings immediately following innings in which the Indians have scored, or just over 36% of the runs the Indians have allowed. Talk about killing momentum. Now, I don’t have the incidence figures–how many times the opposing teams have answered Indians runs with runs of their own–but I think it’s probably reasonable to assume that this happens a fair amount. If anything, it’s happened at least twice: Today the Indians scored one run in the bottom of the third to go ahead 2-1. Then in the top of the fourth the Mariners scored two runs to take a 3-2 lead.

And while I was typing this the Indians scored one run to tie the game in the bottom of the fourth. I wonder what will happen when Seattle comes to bat in the top of the fifth.

UPDATE: The Mariners didn’t score.
