Can't Find My Way Home

Even with all the runs being scored, some players still have trouble getting home. Through Sunday the major leaguer least likely to score was the Mets' Rey Ordo�ez. Before going on the DL with a broken left forearm on May 30, Ordonez had scored 10 times in 155 plate appearances, a rate of one run every 15.5 appearances. When Ordonez did get on base by any means other than an error, he scored only 23.8% of the time, the third-worst rate in the majors among players with at least 150 plate appearances. The Padres' Carlos Hernandez (above) was the least likely to make it home, scoring only 19.6% of the times he got on. Who's the most likely to score? The Giants' Barry Bonds, who had circled the bases after a quarter of his plate appearances.
