The 2010 episode of interleague play is now complete. While the National League managed to tighten to margin somewhat in this final week, it wasn’t enough, as the American League prevailed overall by a tally of 134 wins to 118. Interestingly, the Pythagorean record indicated by the leagues’ comparative runs scored (1,168 for the AL to 1,098 for the NL) comes out as exactly 134-118 as well, so one can say that there wasn’t the slightest bit of flukiness in this win-loss result.
This marks the sixth consecutive season that the AL has come out on top in interleague play. If there’s any silver lining in this cloud for the National League, it would be that this year’s AL winning percentage of .532 was the closest it’s been—probably more accurately termed as “least dominant” it’s been—within this six-year streak.
