A mystery solved


Until this weekend, I had hopes for our offense. Our BASEBALL offense. No more.

Details after the jump.

 

We have four home runs in 24 games. One every six games. I believe we could take batting practice in a hotel ballroom and not break anything.

 

Four regulars – Tant Shepherd, Paul Montalbano, Jonathan Walsh and Kevin Lusson – are hitting under .220. Combined, they’re batting .198 while scoring 35 runs in 299 plate appearances. None of the four is a freshman.

 

We’re averaging 5.3 runs per game, with the toughest part of the schedule ahead. Last year’s offensively challenged team averaged 6.7.

 

We’ve played two 15-inning games and one 14-inning game (plus two others that went extra innings). The pitching is letting us hang in there, but . . .

 

Among Big 12 teams, we’re ninth in hitting (ahead of only Kansas).

 

Based on the above, I believe I’ve got an answer to one of the pressing questions of recent months – the whereabouts of Greg Davis. He’s calling plays for the baseball team.
