They score on homers and other long hits, not rallies. That is why they need a couple more high OBP hitters.
I wonder how often other teams get four and five base runners in an inning?
I know it happens but how often? (just an honest question)

My thoughts too. With McDonald on the mound I didn't have a good feeling about this game. Win the next two and take the series.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
