At Baseball Daily Digest, I investigate into whether or not the American League really is more dominant than the National League.
The defending World Series champion Philadelphia Phillies went 6-12 in interleague play this season. Three of the twelve losses (25%) came in a series sweep at the hands of the Baltimore Orioles who currently have a .408 winning percentage overall. When you only play one or two three-game series once a year, stuff like that is going to happen. No one will argue that the series reflected both teams’ true talent levels.
