The point was raised about how the Sox do in games after they score ten runs or more. It's an interesting question so I did some research. Here are the numbers since the 2000 season. I have no idea what they mean...if anything. I'll leave that for your folks to figure out. Also I didn't break things down to see how many of the losses were aginst 'no name,''rookie,' 'garbage' pitchers. In addition I checked out the Sox 1-0 games to see if they won or lost them...

Here you go:

In 2000 the Sox had 28 games where they scored ten runs or more. In the next immediate game they went 21-7 ! They had an amazing 9 games where they scored 9 runs or more, 8 games where they scored 6-8 runs, 11 games where they scored 3-5 runs and zero games where they scored two runs or less. In 1-0 games that year they were 1-1.

In 2001 the Sox had 10 games where they scored ten runs or more. In the next immediate game they went 5-5 They had only 1 game where they scored 9 runs or more, 3 games where they scored 6-8 runs, 4 games where they scored 3-5 runs and two games where they scored two runs or less. They had no 1-0 games that season.

In 2002 the Sox had 25 games where they scored ten runs or more. In the next immediate game they went 13-12 They had 5 games where they scored 9 runs or more, 7 games where they scored 6-8 runs, 5 games where they scored 3-5 runs and eight games where they scored two runs or less! They went 0-1 in 1-0 games that season.

In 2003 the Sox had 15 games where they scored ten runs or more. In the next immediate game they went 9-6 They had 2 games where they scored 9 runs or more, 3 games where they scored 6-8 runs, 6 games where they scored 3-5 runs and four games where they scored two runs or less. They went 1-3 in 1-0 games that season.

My own rough opinion is that the numbers show how much the 2000 season was a complete fluke. Not only did they have 28 games in double figures but the next game they then went out and 9 games where they scored 9 runs or more. That's preety unheard of...of course that whole season was pretty unheard of.

Anyway take the numbers for what they are worth.
