correct me if I'm wrong, but the team that wins the first game is approximately 70% more likely to win the second game due to the momentum of the winning team. EQUINEBOSS writes: When is the question being posed? Both teams have a 100% chance before the first game is completed. Once completed, one team (the loser of the first game) has a 0% chance of sweeping and the other team (winner of the first game) has only a 50% chance of completing the feat. Not taking into account the ability of either team, once one of the two teams has won the first game, it is simply a 50/50 chance of sweeping the double header by winning the second game. The reason we do not see many teams taking "both ends" of a doubleheader is also simple. Most teams play at or around the .500 mark in Baseball. That being said, most teams only have a 50% chance of winning (or if you are a negative sort, a 50% chance of losing) any given game. Add in the desire and pride of a professional athlete not to lose twice in one day and it makes winning two games that much harder. But, that leaves math and starts adding in the human equation.
