Oh, it's happened. And rather recently at that:
2001 Anaheim Angels
Runs Scored- 691
Runs Allowed- 730
2002 Anaheim Angels
Runs Scored- 851 (+160)
Runs Allowed- 644 (-86)
Run Differential Swing- 246
I've done some research on that in the past, and what happened in Anaheim in 2002 is truly historical.
But alas, where the Angels needed a swing of only 39 Runs to get to the .500 mark, the Reds need 157. To get to the playoffs? Well, let's just say that betting on a second lightning strike is generally a bad wager.
