Pitching In At The Plate

Since Phillies pitchers managed to hit .375 in the Mets series, we thought we'd take this time to see how the team's hurlers are doing at the dish this season.

Among the highlights: Vance Worley (shown lacing an RBI single Tuesday) leads the way with a .229 average, Cliff Lee has four extra-base hits and a slugging percentage higher than Placido Polanco; and Roy Halladay has laid down 13 successful sacrifices.

Their season totals, which include three pinch-hitting appearances:
