Running It Up

In the past 100 years a player has scored 150 or more runs in a season just 18 times, but the Rockies' Todd Helton (above) leads a group of players who might this year. (The single-season record is held by Babe Ruth, who scored 177 times in 1921.) The last player to reach 150 was Ted Williams in 1949, but since then only these eight players have scored as many as 140 times.—David Sabino
