Slugging Sanchez: Lineup Analysis – Part 2

Slugging Sanchez: Lineup Analysis – Part 2

A continuation of Part 1:
More Retrosheet stuff. This time, I looked at the number of times the lead-off batter got on in each game and tried to determine what effect, if any, that had on the production from the third and fourth batters.
For the purposes of this study, I defined “getting on base” as reaching via a walk or hit–something easily countable in a box score. I didn’t include any times that a hitter may have reached on a fielder’s choice, hit batsman, error, etc.
There’s a lot of data here, so I’ve split it up by month. You've already seen April through June; now, here are the results for July through the end of the season (the last 81 games):

 

#1 OB

#3-4 OB

#3-4 RBI
