Odds are against it happening, though. If you flipped heads 80% of the time over 150 trials, you wouldn't expect to flip heads 80% of the time over the next 25. You would expect 50%.

Now, I don't really know what the proper odds of the Orioles winning a one run game are. Maybe it's 55 or 60% because of their bullpen. However, it's definitely not 80%.
