Are There Patterns in Baseball?

So Wednesday night, Nomi and I start watching Game 1 of the World Series. We watch until the end of the amazing fifth inning, when the score is Red Sox 13, Rockies 1, and then we go to bed. We wake up Thursday morning to discover that the final score was 13-1, Red Sox.

Last night, Nomi and I have Game 2 on in the background, and we watch until the end of the fifth inning, when the score is Red Sox 2, Rockies 1. Then we go to bed. We wake up this morning to discover that the final score was 2-1, Red Sox.

I'm starting to think that Saturday night, we should keep watching the game until the Red Sox are winning, then turn off the TV and go to bed. Either that, or hope things are going well for the Sox by the end of the fifth inning....
