The Reason Why They Play 162 games

Well, on Tuesday, not long after I ranted that the Marlins are miserable with runners in scoring position and two out, they beat the Mets in Puerto Rico, 7-6, scoring all their runs with two outs. So ... looking back at the stats now for runners in scoring position, two outs:
1 -- batting average .219 (23rd out of 30)
2 -- on base percentage .315 (28 out of 30)
3 -- slugging percentage.358 (15 of 30).

So they don't get a lot of hits in clutch situations, but when they do, they tend to be big ones.
