It’s been a fun season of baseball so far for fans in New York City.
Regardless of whether they support the New York Yankees or the New York Mets, it’s been exciting to say the least.
These two teams are dominating everybody else in Major League Baseball, as they own the best two records of any team in the game at this point in the season.
It’s been hard for other teams to even hold a candle to these ballclubs.
But one interesting stat courtesy of MLB.com analyst Sarah Langs on Twitter shows just why these two teams have been so dominant thus far.
Most runs in 7th inning or later this season:

Scoring runs late in games is important.
A stat like this often times separates the good teams from the bad teams.
This stat is important because it shows that a team can score runs late in games and come back from deficits.
Overcoming late-game deficits is something that every Major League team needs to have the ability to do.
If a team can’t do that, then they most likely aren’t going to come out as one of the better teams later in the season.
But the Yankees and Mets have shown that they can turn it on at just the right time.
As the old saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going, and the same can be said for the Yankees and the Mets.
They have proven to be baseball’s best teams as of now.
The season is in full swing, and we are now starting to see who the best teams are and what separates them from the rest of the pack
