American League teams are averaging scoring 58 runs this season. The Minnesota Twins have scored 56 thus far this season, which only tells you that the 16 runs they scored against the Angels is more a reflection of the Halo’s awful pitching, than the great bats of the Twinkies.
No pitching staff in baseball has allowed as many runs as the Angels who have permitted 79.
- For perspective, Red Sox pitchers have allowed 36 runs and Braves pitchers have allowed…wait for it…26 runs.
The Angels staff has allowed at least five runs in nine games thus far this season.
The starters (et al) have allowed 30 runs thus far in the first three innings of games, a number exceeded only by Pirates who have permitted 37 and the Twins who have allowed 36.
