Here is a list of the runs per game average in MLB since 2006

Year            Runs/Game

2006                4.86

2007                4.80

2008                4.65

2009                4.61

2010                4.38

2011                4.28

2012                4.32

2013                4.17

2014                4.07


These stats come from Baseball-Reference


Each year, except for in 2012, the run averages went down. Is this because maybe the sport

has finally gotten cleaned up from PEDs? Is it perhaps more from defensive shifting that reduces 

base hits? In 2006 the league batting average was .269, while in 2014 it was .251.
