All stats have been updated as of the All Star Game break. One of the stats we track closely is how well batters have been hitting with runners in scoring position. Here’s a list of the top ten batter averages with RISP in the National League (minimum of 200 plate appearances):
Estrada J. ATL .458 Rolen S. STL .402 Abreu B. PHI .372 Bonds B. SFG .371 Miles A. COL .361 Roberts D. LAD .360 Casey S. CIN .355 Green N. ATL .349 Pierzynski SFG .346 Griffey Jr CIN .343
Nick Green may be no Marcus Giles, but he’s not chopped liver, either. He’s creating 6 runs per 27 outs, which is above the league average.
