LSU Baseball: SEC Pitching Stats Through Week Six

Starters

A tough series loss for the Tigers are reflected in the updated pitching stats. Starting off naturally with the starters, besides Kevin Gausman, the other two starters struggled. Ryan Eades and Aaron Nola threw a lot of strikes, but Kentucky was able to make contact with too many of them. Eades’s WHIP and ERA shot up after his worst outing in conference play. The reason we will remember Eades’s performance instead of Nola’s is because the offense struggled on Saturday. At least Nola had some run support as Nola battled against Kentucky’s best pitcher. If Nola could place more of his pitches on the corners, he could put up Gausman numbers…but that is a big if. Instead he throws a few too many pitches over the middle of the plate and LSU pays for it.

The two struggled this weekend, but it was against the best lineup in the conference. Before we start nitpicking just look at the starters production, they still are pretty good…

Gausman 43 40 18 18 57 1.34 3.76

Bullpen

It still amazes me how well the pen has come together. The numbers look incredible this year, but go back to last season and compare the two bullpens. Notice just how competent the staff is compared to last. A bullpen should be loaded with left and right handed throwers who don’t put runners on base and that is the strength of this pen. They aren’t flashy nor appear to be dominated, but five of their six main contributors have a WHIP of less than one.

Here are the rest of the stats for you enjoyment…
