Of Giants Losses in 2009

Some comments in the Sick And Tired Of We're Out of This Posts thread made me wonder how the team's losses break down, statistically speaking. I did some quick calculations (all pretty much by hand, not double checked, may be errors, etc.) about how much the Giants score in losses and how much they lose by on average.

I posted the results in that fanpost, but it's kinda old and not very active anymore, so I figured I'd make a fanpost. I don't actually know how the results compare to the league average...but they sure look depressing to me.

 

The Giants have lost 66 games and have been outscored in those games by a combined 223 runs. That averages out to an average margin of 3.38 runs per game.

Of those 66 losses, the Giants have been shut out 8 times and have been held to 1 run 21 times. So, in 43.9% (!) of their losses, they’ve been held to one or no runs. In the 66 losses, the Giants have scored a combined 151 runs – that works out to an average of 2.29 runs per game in losses. Aside from one freakish game where the Giants scored 11 runs and lost, the average is 2.15 runs per loss.

 

LOLfense.
