Arkansas Razorbacks Names To Watch


Posted by

Team Outlook:

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 –  .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

* # 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.

    Nole CC, off subject but would you agree that Gator Envy is out of control? Warchant is flooded with threads hoping they lose the WCWS and last weekend praying Miami would beat their baseball team. I wish we could focus on our team, on a Seminole site, all those threads just make Seminole Nation as a whole look bad. Just my 2 cents.
