The Phillies went 1 for 15 (.067) with runners in scoring position in Game 2.

They are 1 for 28 (.036) with RISP in the World Series.

"I'm concerned about us hitting with guys on base because it looks like at times we might be trying a little too hard," Charlie Manuel said.

Whatever the reason, it must change and change quickly.
