Nice throwing in pesky characters to get rid of.....

Play ball! I'm pretty sure I over complicated this home run strategy.

Well, this certainly isn't the most efficient way to solve this challenge, but I got there.  I'm a little ashamed of how many tools I used, but I'll post a screen shot anyway.  Feel free to make fun of me!

You might win the prize for most tools used in a solution...ever 🙂  But like the pilots say "Any landing you can walk away from, is a good one"

Started down the path of win percentage based on number of games instead of number of appearances.  Which was interesting due to the ties, but then figured out what you were looking for!

Not the most elegant solution, but it gives the correct output.

Just like every other weekly challenge  this looked to be easier than it turned out to be. I think I might have the longest solution, but like every other solution it works.

Solved, but took far too long as I was trying to get the Crew Expect Equal tool to work and it kept returning an error as the team names weren't matching. It looked like there was trailing white space but that didn't remove it and ended up removing an unknown character with a few string functions.

I'm interested in the regex solutions as hopefully they won't bring through the additional "white space".
