Lucky Sox

Red_Sox_Reached_On_Error_2015Data via the Baseball-Reference.com Play Index

The Red Sox are leading the AL East with a 9-5 record through Tuesday’s games, thanks in large part to a prolific offense that has scored more than five runs per game. They’ve been a bit lucky to do so, however. 14 Red Sox have reached base on error so far, four more than any other team in baseball and more than twice the MLB average. Boston will hit well regardless — and reaching base on error is a skill to some degree — but it can’t count on so many opposing miscues going forward.
