LSU Baseball: SEC-Only Offensive Stats through Week Nine


The numbers as a group went down after a rough three game stretch from the plate for LSU this past weekend. LSU still remains in the middle of the pack of the SEC in most major offensive stats. The Tigers are fourth in the conference in batting average (.280), on-base percentage (.392) and homeruns (20). LSU dipped to sixth in runs scored with 122 (4.7 runs per game).

Sometimes the saying less is more can come across as a bit redundant, but in this article it might be perfect. As opposed breaking down the significance of the individual performances in SEC play, I am just going to throw out the numbers and let you the reader evaluate and discuss where the team is at. Lets take a look.

BA Runs Hits 2B HR RBI BB K RC ISOP
Rhymes .469 16 45 3 3 17 10 8 29.57 .125
Katz .291 24 30 4 4 16 12 20 18.75 .139
Ross .287 9 25 2 3 14 10 13 13.71 .149
Jones .276 19 29 10 3 19 8 24 15.71 .181
Hanover .229 11 22 4 1 4 8 17 5.29 .072
Nola .250 9 24 5 3 20 14 14 13.13 .135
Fields .266 12 17 2 0 5 6 12 6.90 .063
Snikeris .324 4 12 1 0 4 1 6 4.44 .027
Edwards .320 1 8 1 0 2 0 3 2.76 .040
Dozar .245 8 13 2 1 5 8 18 6.19 .094
Moore .242 7 15 2 2 8 4 18 6.62 1.29

The one thing to note is the dip Raph Rhymes took after batting two for 12 from the plate against Vanderbilt. He entered the weekend batting .511 in SEC play, but as you can see that number dropped a bit. His regular season average fell to .478, but still has a .020 lead for the NCAA batting title.
