The Phillies' All-Star Game RBI Drought

No Phillie has had an RBI in an All-Star Game since 1989,  when a Von Hayes 8th-inning single scored Glenn Davis with the  last run of the NL’s 5-3 loss.

That is the second longest All-Star RBI drought among the current 30 franchises, exceeded only by the Royals, whose last  RBI came off the bat of Bo Jackson just six innings earlier than  Hayes’ hit.

 Here are the Phillies’ 18 runs batted in during All-Star play:
