By the numbers

June 02, 1996|By Buster Olney

Braves pitchers have nine RBIs in their first 51 games, meaning they have more RBIs than Cubs infielder Rey Sanchez (seven in 47 games) and as many as Mets shortstop Rey Ordonez (nine in 46 games) and Giants second baseman Robby Thompson (nine in 29 games).

Texas has gotten at least six innings from its starting pitcher in 20 of its past 25 games. Its relievers have made a total of 102 appearances, lowest in the AL.

St. Louis manager Tony La Russa has not repeated his lineup (position players only) from one day to the next this season.

Red Sox first baseman Mo Vaughn is on a pace to hit 61 homers and drive in 176 runs. Vaughn hit .253 against left-handers last year; this year, .333.

Indians utility man Scott Leius doubled last week, and now is 1-for-25 this season.

Giants third baseman Matt Williams has nine errors and is on a pace to commit 30 this year, or four fewer than he had made over the previous three seasons combined.

The Cubs bullpen has blown five of 11 save chances, with Doug Jones blowing five of seven.

Tigers first baseman Cecil Fielder hasn't driven in a run after the sixth inning this year.

The Rockies are hitting .339 at home, .216 on the road.

The Phillies have started 24 different center fielders in place of injury-prone Lenny Dykstra since 1989.
