While simple random variation plays a factor, it's not the only factor.
Its no where as big as Coors field, they actually play in a normal size ballpark. Most of that is Jay's .430 BABIP at home and if you every seen Jay play at home 75% of his hits are swinging bunts or 30 hoppers just past infielders, Kozma kicked in a .524 to boot but that was in limited time.
You know its not a park factor due to the have a .298 BABIP at home for their pitchers which is slightly about league average.
