Stat freaks: Which inning are the most runs scored?

The 1st makes sense to me as does the 6th/7th idea, but I'm going to be willing to make the claim that you should consider roughly when the heart of your lineup gets their second time around in the 3rd/4th. They've seen the pitcher already and have made their adjustments.

It may also even depend on which part of the season you're in because in the beginning of the season pitchers are more likely to get shelled since hitters are way ahead of pitchers early in the season.

I know what it is for Brad Radke. He gives up runs in the first practically every game.

I would say first due to fact that the pitcher is tring to find a groove and also have the 1,2 and 3 hitters up with no outs.

I think first would be the obvious answer.



Pitcher hasnt found his groove yet (not the case for all pitchers), plus the fact you have the top of your order up, it seems like a sure thing.

I could see a bunch of innings as possibilities, I wish someone had this answer though.

1st IP face the top hitters in each lineup, but it's also a batters first look at the pitcher, plus the pitcher is fresh, plus the pitcher is better than middle relievers.

5th, 6th, 7th IP SP can be getting tired, facing batters for the 3rd time. Middle relieves come in who are usually worse than SP.

Probably, although I'd exclude the 9th even if you leave our an argument about a shut-down closer simply because about half the time, only half of the innings gets played.

I don't think it should matter that the 9th inning is played only half the time. It would just be considered a 1/2 inning.

The best hitters come up in the first inning. There is no other inning that is guaranteed to have the best hitters come to the plate. I would say it almost has to be the first inning.
