A simple stat that you provide doesn't really explain the offenses success or failures. We have scored 38% of our runs in 5 games.
That's not really surprising because that's how math works. Higher numbers = a higher percentage. Every team is going to look like this. If you play 10 games, score 10 runs in 1 game and 10 runs in the other 9, you've scored 50% of your runs in 10% of your games.
Put another way, the Reds have scored 38% of their runs in 15% of their games.
As a comparison, the NL has scored 43% (the closest percentage I could find to 38%) of it's runs in 20% of it's games.
The Reds have scored 2 or fewer runs in 38% of their games.
The NL has scored 2 or fewer runs in 35% of their games.
The Reds have scored 5 or more runs in 50% of their games.
The NL has scored 5 or more runs in 39% of their games.
The Reds have scored 1 run in 24% (8) of their games. Then again, they score 4 runs or higher 56% of the time while the league only does that 51% of the time.
