If fans were allowed to attend Phillies game in this 60-game season, they would definitely need a scorecard:

The Phillies are at or near the top in most offensive categories, and they have sent up too many starting line-ups to count.

“When we’re hitting on all cylinders, we’re a pretty tough team to get out,” Bryce Harper said.

“Joe does a great job of really putting guys into the lineup when they’re going to be successful instead of putting them in just because and setting them up for failure. I think Joe does a really good job of that. He’s been around the game for a long time. Being able to see him work the lineup the way he wants — get guys out of the game or get guys in the game — he does a great job. I think we’re fortunate to have Joe on our side.”

Harper is the only Phillies hitter who has started every game in the same lineup spot, third.

He was there again last night and delivered the crushing blow, a three-run homer, during a sixth inning in which the Phillies sent 12 men to the plate.
