We hope you weren’t banking on homefield advantage Thursday


USA Today Sports

Maybe home teams just thought they could kick their feet up Thursday, but it did not pan out as they went an abysmal 1-9 straight-up. Teams taking to their home diamonds managed to amass a mere 2.3 runs, with four teams only plating a lone runner.

Road teams dominated the scoresheet by almost doubling up their hosting counterparts (44-23). Four road teams even managed to win by three or more runs in hostile territory Thursday.

The lone home team to leave action with a ‘W’ Thursday was the Texas Rangers, and it took them 11 innings to pull a 2-1 victory over the White Sox.

On the season as a whole home teams have won 53.41 percent of the time.
