Phillies on a scoring run since April
PHILADELPHIA -- Here is an interesting statistic: The Phillies lead the National League in scoring since the end of April.

They rank fourth overall in that span, scoring 221 runs.

Breaking down the numbers a little further, the Phillies are second in the NL with 4.80 runs per game. Only the Rockies (4.95) have averaged more. The Phillies are third in the big leagues in batting (.276); fifth in on-base percentage (.332) and extra-base hits (151); and seventh in slugging percentage (.432) and OPS (.764).

The Phillies have not been as proficient with runners in scoring position, batting just .258 to rank 12th in baseball.

But that is not why the Phillies have been struggling. They rank 25th overall with a 4.42 team ERA.
