Roch around the clock


July 09, 2006

A reader wanted to know about the Orioles' success rate with a runner on third base and one out. Unless someone is willing to watch video of every game, and that's too harsh a punishment, I'm told there's no way to garner those figures.

Kevin Behan of the Orioles' public relations staff said the Orioles rank seventh in the American League with a .274 average with runners in scoring position. They're batting .273 with runners in scoring position and fewer than two outs.

It must have been .450 before the White Sox series.

No stats are available for third base.

Sorry to leave you stranded, though it somehow seems appropriate.
