The rise of the Tampa Bay club in the major leagues is not unusual.
Tampa Bay won 3-0 in an away game against Baltimore on the 9th (Korean time). The season record is 29 wins and 7 losses, with a win rate of 0.806. It is the only one of the 30 major league teams to record a single-digit loss, as well as first place in the American League East Division, and is running first in the overall win rate. The gap with Atlanta (24-11, win rate 0.686) of the National League Eastern Division, which has the next highest winning rate, is also quite large. At this level, it is not a gust of wind, but it is worthy of being called a ‘gwangbang’.
The strength of the changed Tampa Bay was clearly revealed in the home game against the district rival New York Yankees on the 8th, the previous day. The opposing starting pitcher is ace Gerrit Cole (33). For Cole, who is considered one of the best right-handed orthodox pitchers in the league, the Tampa Bay lineup did not score a single point until the fourth inning. In the meantime, the Yankees scored 6 runs. If the Ace was leading 6-0 until the middle of the game, anyone could easily predict the Yankees’ victory.
However, Tampa Bay caught up with 2 points in the attack at the end of the 5th inning, and added 5 points in the 6th inning, succeeding in a 7-6 reversal. Although the game was tied by giving up one run in the 7th inning, Tampa Bay won a dramatic 8-7 victory thanks to Isaac Paredes (24)’s final hit in the bottom of the 10th inning.안전놀이터
If Tampa Bay continues its current upward trend, it can challenge the highest win rate in the major league regular season since the 20th century.
The highest record in this category is 0.763 (116 wins, 36 losses), set by the Chicago Cubs in 1906, 117 years ago. At the time, the Cubs had the highest win rate by balancing pitching with the most points (704 points) and the least runs (381 points) in the league. The Cubs advanced to the World Series that year, but lost the series to their local rival, the Chicago White Sox, with a record of 2 wins and 4 losses.
The second best winning percentage of all time is 0.741 (103-36) recorded by Pittsburgh in 1902. Currently, Pittsburgh is weak, but in the early 1900s, it was a strong enough team to compete in the postseason for three consecutive years (1901-03). In 1903, he made it to the World Series, but never lifted the championship trophy. And six years later, in 1909, with an odds ratio of 0.724 (110-42), they advanced to the World Series again and finally accomplished the great feat of winning.
