32-23 1 1/5

2

34-21 1 1/19

Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

28-27 7 2/19

Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

28-28 4 5/27
19 times the Phillies scored two runs or less in their first 55 games this season. So why shouldn’t Charlie Manuel throw Hector Luna in the cleanup spot?

Paul Goldschmidt, anyone? The Arizona first baseman has been on fire in the desert of late, hitting for a high average and big power en route to a career-high hitting streak.
