ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The last team to go through the first two games of a World Series without a hit with a runner in scoring position was the 2001 Yankees.
And they were just 0-for-4 total, for the two games.
The Phillies didn't make it through two full games, but they were 0-for-19 with runners in scoring position for the series before Shane Victorino's one-out infield hit in Game 2. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it's the second-longest 0-for with runners in scoring position to start a World Series. The Dodgers finished the 1966 World Series 0-for-22 with RISP.
The Phillies went 0-for-13 in Game 1, becoming the first team to ever do that in a World Series game. Four teams had gone 0-for-12, most recently the 1980 Royals, in Game 5 against the Phillies.
