Rockies on the road

MLB trends: Rockies on the road to unwanted record; unsung Reds slugger having huge season ⚾

The 2021 MLB regular season is roughly 30 percent complete and things are looking more and more normal. For example, there are no longer any qualified batters hitting over .400. We are still averaging close to a no-hitter a week, however, and that is decidedly not normal. A no-hitter a week the rest of the season would be something else. Our weekly series examining various trends across the league continues with a look at a team changing ballparks midseason, a breakout slugger, and one team's historic road woes. Last week we broke down a rookie's improbable week, a veteran hurler's adjustment, and a league-wide offensive trend.
