BP on hitting 2nd: "Everyone tells me I'm doing a good job hitting second," Phillips said. "They're still pitching to me like I'm batting fourth, but my approach is totally different and go where they're pitching me and either get on base or move the guy over." "I'm not going to say I like it, but I'm going to do what Dusty wants me to do, hitting second is different because you've got to play that role, when you're hitting third and fourth, your role is to drive in runs and get the hits in those situations," Phillips said. "I miss doing that, but I'm going to do what Dusty tells me to do. I'd love getting those RBIs and love doing those things, but what I've learned about batting second is you can't steal, because you need to leave a hole for Joey and those things. But as long as we win, I'm happy. I'm going to do what they ask me to do, I don't care as long as we're winning, that's why I'm not tripping. I'll just do my job hitting second and make the team better."
