Come on, you know what I mean.
In baseball, you can draw a walk with the bases loaded and you get a run.
You can get a hit with a man on third and you get a run.
You can hit with a man on second and third and possibly get TWO runs.
How about them grand slams?
You can only score one goal at a time in hockey. In baseball, I guess that's true, too, but you can score more than one run on the same play.
If you don't have too many home run hitters on the team, you have to focus on getting as many men on base as you can, instead of getting one on base and the next batter randomly hits a home run to drive in two runs.
