"There were five instances yesterday in which a team loaded the bases with nobody out. The rest of those five innings featured one hit against six strikeouts, and a total of five runs scored, just two (by the Mets in the first game of their doubleheader) on a hit. Watch enough baseball, and you see this happening all the time."
