Once again, forget the stats and go back to logic. If you're consistently going into the 8th and 9th inning in a tied or one run game, you are exposing yourself to one bad pitch or one bad bounce or one bad call losing the game for you. Eventually those bounces will turn against you, and you'll start to lose.
Does anyone honestly think the Orioles will continue to win 80% of one run games going forward?
A lot of it has to do with the bullpen
