Who does better in extra-inning games: home or away teams?

by Bill Chuck on June 14, 2013

There were nine games played yesterday:

Games R H E
Boston Red Sox 4 9 2 F (13)
@Baltimore Orioles 5 12 1
Philadelphia Phillies 3 16 0 F
@Minnesota Twins 2 3 2
New York Yankees 2 10 0 F (18)
@Oakland Athletics 3 12 2
Kansas City Royals 10 14 1 F
@Tampa Bay Rays 1 6 0
Toronto Blue Jays 3 4 0 F
@Texas Rangers 1 6 1
Cincinnati Reds 5 13 1 F (14)
@Chicago Cubs 6 15 2
Washington Nationals 5 9 1 F
@Colorado Rockies 4 9 0
St. Louis Cardinals 2 10 0 F
@New York Mets 1 7 0
San Francisco Giants 10 17 0 F
@Pittsburgh Pirates 0 3 3
  • Of the nine games, the visitors won six.
  • The other three games won by the home team, all went extra-innings.

This got me wondering: who has the advantage in extra-inning games, the home team or the visitors?

Let’s start with the basic assumption that home teams always have the winning edge.

So far this season

Home 536 447 .545

However…

  • In extra-inning games this season, home teams have a record of 54-56.

  • In extra-inning games in 2012, home teams had a record of 96-96.

But…

  • Before we see this as a trend, we need to look at this season and last as outliers
