Running some numbers here on baseball. These are numbers only from SEC games.
Against the league the Rebels are hitting .216, last. That’s a distant last. Kentucky is 13th at .245, Georgia 12th at .246, South Carolina 11th at .248 and MSU 10th at .249.
The SEC ERA is 3.63 which ranks the Rebels ninth. Really, that puts them around the middle of the pack. There’s little separation between teams 6-10. Florida, South Carolina, MSU, Ole Miss and Kentucky all range from 3.51 to 3.69.
Ole Miss pitching has allowed 49 walks against conference teams, third-most in the league.
The Rebels only scored once in Tuesday’s 5-1 loss to MSU, but Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco focused on the pitching.
“Just too many walks. That’s been all the starters. We’ve got to do something. You can’t walk 10 guys, hit a guy and expect to win. It’s amazing they only got five runs,” he said.
Some interesting numbers for Alabama, this weekend’s opponent at Swayze Field. The Tide his hitting just .253 in all games but .284 on the weekend, pitching with a 2.96 ERA overall but a 2.19 ERA in SEC play which ranks second in the league.
