Remember the big deal it was when the Phillies won the first 12 games in which Hunter Pence got a hit after his trade from the Astros?
Well, try this one on for size: They win the first 19 games in which he scored a run for them. Including Wednesday's season finale, they were 25-2 when he crossed home plate. That's a nice, little .926 winning percentage.
Here are the Phils' records when their players with at least 20 runs scored this season:
|Hunter Pence||25- 2||.926|
|Ben Francisco||17- 3||.850|
|Chase Utley||36- 7||.837|
|Placido Polanco||31- 8||.795|
|Domonic Brown||17- 5||.773|
|Michael Martinez||17- 5||.773|
|Wilson Valdez||24- 8||.750|
|John Mayberry||23- 8||.742|
