Phillies continue success with runners in seated position

By Zaki, PhillyGameday.com

In recent games, Phillies batters have come through in fine fashion with runners firmly planted on the dugout bench.

The success with runners in seated position (RISeP) has helped carry the team while they continue to lay eggs with runners actually on base.

“I think we owe our seated position success to our love of staying seated,” Ryan Howard explained on Saturday. “We try and put as many solo home runs on the board as possible so as not to burden our teammates with standing adrift on a base somewhere with nothing to do. What you may call failing in the clutch, we call helping out a friend.”
