ESPN News anchor Cindy Brunson on 6/04:

“The Red Sox’ loss to the Yankees is just their 6th in their last 17 games.” (emphasis hers)

6 losses in 17 games means their record in those games is 11-6, right? Right. 11-6 is a .647 winning percentage. The Red Sox’ season winning percentage is .673.

Cindy Brunson, 11-6 is not an amazing hot streak, like your tone implied. It is just about right in comparison to their season performance.
