Do what?

This has absolutely nothing to do with the Florida Marlins, but while I was doing the news search, this stood out.

26/02/10 Marlins defeated Angels 24-11. Marlins had 24 runs, 9 hits, 5 errors and left 14 runners on base.

How the heck do you score 24 runs on only 9 hits while leaving 14 on base?

Then I read further:

Angels had 11 runs, 7 hits, 10 errors and left 4 runners on base.

Yep, poor fielding will do it every time.  There is a lesson here somewhere, but I'm not going into it at this point in the season.
