They are on pace to do precisely that. On September 5, they lead the Cardinals by 10.5 games. In the ensuing week and a half, they have lost almost half of that lead - five games - while playing only eight times. In those eight games, they have never scored more than three runs and only managed that twice. They are averaging all of two runs per game over that stretch.
They not only can blow out it, they are well into the process.
