... but since May 8th we are 12-5 and all five losses are by exactly one run.

This has to be a telling statistic for three weeks of baseball... but what it tells me, I can't figure out.

it means they have a slim margin for error.

Good offense, good pitching, poor/shaky bullpen. I am interested to see how many of those losses are to a reliever.

That a good manager could've made the difference in several of the games we've lost :D lol

It means Dusty is doing his job, we are not getting blown out of any games. Every game is close and it is a battle. We are not giving up till the end of the game. That is an inspiring stat.

Great teams don't get blown away very often. It shows we may be of that caliber.

I thought that it meant this team is playing phenomenal baseball. going 12-5 is great, but only losing by 1 in all five games is fantastic.

During that same stretch, the Reds' 12 victories are by an average margin of 3.83 runs - with only three of the 12 being 1-run victories. That spread is padded by pounding out 14 runs against the Cubbies in one game, and also outscoring Pittsburgh 16-1 in the mid-May series in Pittsburgh. (It still grinds my gears that they swept us in April.)

For the season, we have scored six more runs than we have allowed - and we are 10-9 in one-run games. Virtually every team has streaks where they can't seem to win the close ones and periods where they can't seem to lose.

I think it's pretty simple - The Reds aren't good enough to regularly overwhelm its opponents but has strong starting pitching and enough offense to keep it close most nights.

Aside from the Atlanta debacle, most of those one-run games were also low scoring games as well. That tells me that the pitching and defense has been good, while the Reds' offense hasn't been exceptional. Meanwhile, the Reds have also faced opponents' whose offense has likewise struggled.
