Two Out, Runners in Scoring Position

After last night’s sixth inning festivities, the Mets are now tied for the NL lead in runs scored with 2 outs and runners in scoring position. In terms of their actual batting averages and OPS — you can click the image to make it larger — the Mets aren’t the best team percentage-wise in getting runners home with 2 outs. They’re closer to sixth. But they’ve scored so many runs because they’ve had more opportunities with 2 outs and RISP than any other team. Mostly because they have so many gotten so many runners on base. The Mets are now second in the NL in on-base percentage. They have been good at getting them over and getting them in, but great at getting them on.
