Ballpark Factors and Rematch of 1972 and 1990 World Series as Statis-Pro A's take on Reds

 As the rematch of the 1972 and 1990 World Series lines up in our home-and-home Oakland vs. Cincinnati game, here is a reminder on the home run chart. On a deep drive in Oakland Coliseum in the first game the ball will only leave the park on 11-15, and be a sac fly on 16-88. for the second game in Cincinnati, the ball will fly out on anything from 11-63.

This is one reason the Oakland A's pitchers ERAs are pretty good, but their hitting is very weak with most of their line-up sporting an OPS below .0.700. However, this is factored into the cards so they should hit better than that in Cincinnati's hitter friendly ballpark.

The results of the two games to follow.

Reds drop the opener 3-2 at Oakland, leaving the tying run in third base in the 9th.

2nd game. India's 3-run homer in the 6th helped Cincy pull off a 7-2 win which counts as a sweep, meaning they take the series 4 games to 2 despite losing the first game. India's homer occurred in his lowest out number because Oakland's pitchers allow that to offset their advantage of pitching in a pitchers park.

The Reds are now 4 games out of our last playoff spot with only two series left, against the bearable Rockies but then the Dodgers.
