Re: What to make of this stat?
It means the Pirates will have to pitch themselves through the post-season. They have outscored only three NL teams: Cubs, Marlins, and Padres. On the flip side, the only team to allow fewer runs is Atlanta. (The Reds rank third best in runs allowed.)
In other words, score 4 runs against Pittsburgh and you'll probably win.
