Major League Record Book: Career Runs

Well, we’ve finished the league record book and the minor league record book, which leaves us one category: the major leagues! As usual, I have the 2006-2018 list, and the all-time list, which I have been working on for quite some time now… and it’s altogether possible that I have missed some players. But several pitchers have been added to the all-time lists, which has given those lists a bit of a makeover. So to speak.

Here’s what I have for career runs scored in the major leagues:

2006-2018
1 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 644
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 542
3 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 513
4 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 357
5 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 143
6 Tommy La Stella Haymarket ’09 84
7 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 83
8 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 74
9 Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-6 63
10 Tyler White Haymarket ’10 58
11 Eric Campbell Luray ’06 53
12 Mac Williamson Harrisonburg ’11 38
13 Joey Butler New Market ’06 33

Additions: Tyler White and Mac Williamson joined the list

Changes: Tommy La Stella moved from #9 up to #6 with his 23 runs scored.

Honestly, the 2006-2018 record books for hitters are dominated by Dan Murphy, with Jason Kipnis and Jon Jay just behind, and Yonder Alonso coming.
