The "scoring environment" is less important here than the components of scoring. Losing a baserunner may be more detrimental in a low scoring environment, but what if finding first base isn't a problem? i.e. you have tons of OBP but few XBH?
Having said that, I'm guessing the allowable CS% doesn't move that much, maybe between 65% and 75%.
