Allowing 4+ runs

Early this morning, the County Clerk did some checking and found that when allowing 4+ runs the Astros are 5-46. This seems awfully low. So let's look and see just how bad it is across the NL.

ATL46-358-28
LAD36-458-35

A few things to note about this.

1) Of course this means that the Astros' offense struggles to score 4+ runs. In their 80 games, the Astros have scored 4+ runs in just 43 of them - and are 21-22 when they actually do.

2) Only the Cubs have played more games where they have allowed 4+ runs, with 53 to the Astros' 51. But they've at least won 11 of those games.

3) As a whole, the National League is 185-496 when allowing their opponents to score 4+ runs for a .272 Win%. Taking the Astros out of the equation, that bumps up the NL Win% to .286, because the Astros bring that down with their .098 Win%.
