Slightly interesting statistic

Looking at the standings in the NL West right now (that is before any games played today) three teams - the Padres, Diamondbacks, and Giants - all of which are over .500, also all have had more runs scored against them than they themselves have scored. As of this moment they seem to be the only major league teams to be in that amusing situation, and for some reason they are all in the same division.

In contrast I can only see two teams under .500 scoring more then their opponents: Milwaukee and Detroit, both of which are just 1 game under .500, and also happen to be in different leagues (albeit both in the central division - another fun co-incidence).

I do love it when stats throw up fun things like this.
