Arkansas Razorbacks Names To Watch
Posted by William Kristoph
The Razorbacks head to Tallahassee after winning the Norman, OK regional. Arkansas is 37-22 on the season, but only 10-8 on the road away from their loud and proud fans at home in Baum Stadium (I’m sure some will make the trip to Tally, that should be a treat). They had a losing SEC conference record at 14-15.
At The Plate:
* #17 Andy Wilkins – Leads the team with a .329 AVG, .648 SLG%, 51 RBI, 49 R, 17 2B, 138 TB and 17 HR. In other words this guy makes the Arkansas offense go.
* # 1 Ben Tschepikow – .317 AVG, 16-21 SB
* # 8 Chase Leavitt – Â .306 AVG, 44 BB, .452 OB%
On The Mound:
# 49 Stephen Richards (closer) – 5-1, 1.09 ERA, 33 IP, 9 S, and BAA .184.
# 29 Dallas Keuchel – 7-3, 94 IP
*Â # 33 Drew Smyly – Season stats are mediocre, but he pitched a gem for 8.1 innings to advance Arkansas to the Super Regionals, and might be the hot hand as a starter or out of the pen for the Razorbacks.
* indicates the player was on the Norman Regional All Tournament Team.
