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:

Player       W-  L      Pct.
