If you've been paying attention to Red Sox baseball this season, you know that the Red Sox run production is down. This is going to be a quick inside the numbers look at how far down the production is and how different our record would look if only we were scoring runs like we typically do.
If the Red Sox were to have scored one additional run in regulation:
- 8 of their losses would have resulted in wins
- 13 of their losses would have had the game continue into extra innings
- 29 losses would have remained
- Assuming they were to have lost all of the extra inning games, the Red Sox record would currently be 47-42 (2nd place in AL East)
If we were to add 2 runs in regulation:
- 21 of the Red Sox losses would have resulted in wins
- 6 losses would have been turned into extra inning ballgames
- Only 23 games would have resulted in losses.
- Assuming they were to have lost all of the extra inning games, the Red Sox record would currently be 60-29 (Best record in baseball by 4 wins)
