The 1930 Philadelphia Phillies may have hit .315, but when you adjust for their ballpark (Baker Bowl), it turns out that they had a below-average offense relative to the league. The Ultimate Team Encyclopedia pegs their adjusted offensive production at 7% below league average.
In road games, the Phillies scored only 5.08 runs/game, about 9% below the league average (5.57). Their pitchers allowed 7.03 runs/game, which was a good bit better than they did at home, but was still the worst league runs allowed/game by almost seven-tenths of a run.
The 1930 Phillies are only one of six teams to win fewer than half their games when scoring five or more runs (42-48, .467). By contrast, the overall winning percentage of teams from 1901-2004 when scoring five or more runs is .779. (Don Malcolm)
