So, it shouldn't surprise us that Edwin is "clutch", in those situations...he just hits that way. (Well, at least that's what I think).
Which explains why EE routinely has the highest batting average in the league, because he gets so many hits into that hole.......
I have no idea what the placement of EE`s hits has to his clutchness.
Question: What bag is the SS playing close to, as the secondbaseman would be covering 2nd if there was a runner on first.
