Scorecard EXTRA preview: Cubs vs. Phillies

Victorino crop for blog.jpgWhile Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins and the injured Chase Utley are the Philadelphia offensive regulars that grab most of the headlines, it is centerfielder Shane Victorino who often fuels the Phillies’ run production.

Despite a .250 average, the 5-9 Hawaiian knocked 14 balls out of the park, accrued 48 RBIs and stole a team-high 17 bases in the season’s first half. Baseball Prospectus’ Christina Kahrl highlighted Victorino’s versatility in July’s Scorecard EXTRA (above).
