"The Mariners, hitting .218/.294/.380 as a team, are hitting .264/.338/.471 with runners in scoring position. The team has a .290 BABIP in all situations, and a .331 BABIP with RISP. Measured by relative OPS (tOPS+), no team in baseball outperforms its baseline with runners in scoring position more than the Mariners do. No team, in fact, is even close."
