Runs to Hits Ratio: National League

So I was thinking, because I've been sick the last couple of days: Man, the Astros seem to be able to hit the ball (kind of), but they sure don't score many runs. How do they compare to the rest of the National League? It's a valid question, and there's a valid answer. Regard:

As of this morning, 1-16 in total runs:hits ratio

2St. Louis148251.590
3Colorado125215.581
4Chicago123217.567

6Florida126224.563
7Milwaukee121222.545
8Pittsburgh118227.520

10San Diego108214.505
11New York118238.496
12Arizona99201.493
13Cincinnati102211.483
14Atlanta105218.482
15Houston106233.455
16San Francisco90205.439


Everyone realizes what this means, right? It basically takes 2+ hits to get one run for the Astros. And while the Astros rank 12th in the NL in runs, they're 5th in hits. That's a bad ratio. Obviously.
