The Padres are the worst hitting team in the major leagues with runners in scoring position.

San Diego is hitting .195 in RISP situations this season.

"It's been a weakness of ours all year," Padres manager Bud Black said recently. "We've struggled in several areas, like getting runners home from third with less than two out. We know it. We've talked about it. Everyone on the team knows about it."

The more people on base, the bigger the problem. The Padres are hitting .193 (11-for-57) with the bases loaded, including .133 with the bases loaded and two out. The Padres have scored 34 runs in 57 bases-loaded opportunities.

Chase Headley has the Padres' lone grand slam this season.

A look at some key Padres in RISP situations.

Catcher John Baker (.391; 9-for-23) and outfielder Will Venable (.286; 10-for-35) are the Padres' top hitters in RISP situations.

At the other end of the spectrum:

Second baseman Alexi Amarista (.063; 1-for-16), shortstop Everth Cabrera (.103; 3-for-29), catcher Nick Hundley (.154; 8-for-52), center fielder Cameron Maybin (.193; (11-for-57), outfielder Jesus Guzman (.208; 10-for-48) and first baseman Yonder Alonso (.210; 13-for-62),
