Happy Staturday Birdland! While it’s been a miserable week of baseball, there are always a few interesting stats to check out. So let’s get to them!
We’ll start out with a few Trey Mancini stats. He’s been a really bright spot in a lackluster season.
Highest batting average with RISP in MLB (min 200 total PA):
1. Paul Goldschmidt – .427
2. Trey Mancini – .412
3. Eduardo Nunez – .407
At .404, Trey Mancini has the highest batting average with RISP in the American League and second highest in all of MLB.
Most home runs with RISP in MLB:
Trey Mancini – 8
Aaron Judge – 8
Cody Bellinger – 8
Yeah, I’d say Trey Mancini is good at hitting with runners on. We’ll finish off this week with a staple: Manny stats.
Last night was Manny Machado’s 9th career 4-hit game, tying him with Melvin Mora, Brady Anderson, and a few others for 17th most in Orioles’ history.
Two of Manny’s four hits were long balls, making it his 11th career multi-homer performance. That’s second most by an Oriole before age 26. His 25th birthday was Thursday.
That’ll do it for this week! For more stats like these, follow @BirdlandStats on Twitter!
