In the age of homeruns and strike outs, the Miami Hurricanes baseball team is doing things the old school way. This is the baseball your dad grew up loving.
The success we’ve seen this season has centered around two main things: pitching and timely hitting. The Canes rank in the top half of
the ACC in runs, hits, batting average and on-base %, but rank in the bottom half in home runs (49) and slugging %. Canes have been getting runs the old school way, stringing together hits and keeping rallies going with timely hits. (Would love to add stats for two-out hitting but can’t find any on google).
As great as the offense has been, the pitching has been nails. The staff as a whole boasts a 4.29 ERA (6th in ACC), has accumulated 448 strike outs (2nd in ACC), and a .229 batting average against (3rd in ACC). Anchored by the weekend rotation, the Canes hurlers have been able to be dominant at times and keep games close and shut the door late in games (Closer Andrew Walters has 12 saves with a 0.38 ERA with 47 strike outs in 23.2 IP).
This has been an exciting team to watch. They play a really fun brand of baseball are poised for a potential nice summer run!
