Default The key to winning the series this weekend vs Vandy

Looking through stats both for all games and conference games, Vandy lights up the stat sheet in pretty much every category. On paper, they look completely invincible. However, there is only one important category where they show a weakness. THIS CATEGORY IS WALKS ALLOWED. They have walked more batters this year than anyone else in the SEC, both overall and in conference play. This is a VERY imporant stat that we absolutely must exploit to be successful this weekend. This weekend more than ever it is extremely important that our guys take a very patient approach at the plate. In my opinion, I do not belive we can win this series without this type of approach at the plate. Zoimek and Beede just do not give up hits, plain and simple. But they do walk guys, especially Beede, and Zoimek has had control issues at times as well. An aggresive approach against them is going to do nothing but sit our guys down easily. We are not going to hit either of those two guys around, I can guarantee that, I dont think any one has all year long. I hope our coaches are preaching this same philosophy to our players to get ready for this weekend.

That is a big chink in the armor. We have to cut down the base running errors and take advantage of the free bases. Those are golden in any matchup but especially with Vandy. Good info there, Mr. Salami!!

The key to winning is to get more runs across the plate than the opponent does.

We can do this!!!!

If our fielding percentage dips more, we are in big trouble. Errors kill us

Default Re: The key to winning the series this weekend vs Vandy

Seems to me that week in and week out, and especially in the post-season, the key is to get deep into the opponent's bullpen early and often. If you can cut through the opponent's pitching depth and get to some of their less consistent hurlers, it gives an enormous confidence boost and puts the opponent in a vulnerable position, especially in games two and three. Not to oversimplify, but yeah, the key is to get on base and then convert...and not allow the opponent to do the same.

If our starters go deep in games and our defense plays well we can win any game.

Default Re: The key to winning the series this weekend vs Vandy

Yes of course, the team who scores the most runs wins as everyone is pointing out ha. The point is how are we going to get those runs? And i think drawing walks is going to be very important against these guys in order to score runs. An aggressive approach is not going to work, Zoimek and Beede are 5th and 7th respectively in the entire country in hits allowed per 9 innings. By comparison, none of our pitchers are in the top 50, although Webb would be but he hasnt pitched enough innings to qualify. I do not believe we can score runs against these guys without being patient and drawing walks. Obviously, getting our starters to work deep is also very important for our team to be successful because after Webb and Westmoreland we have no one reliable out of the pen. If we get 7+ innings from both belcher and Montgomery and manage to win one of those games, I believe we will have the edge for the Sunday game with the way Wynkoop has been pitching and having Webb and Westy both available. But it is going to be VERY difficult to scratch out runs in those first two games, and I do not think we can do it without being very patient at the plate and benefitting from walks. I just hope to see this approach from our hitters this weekend or it is going to be very difficult to beat either Ziomek or Beede.

Default Re: The key to winning the series this weekend vs Vandy

Yes, I absolutely hate when we're swinging at the first pitch on 90% of our ABs. I get the aggressive approach, especially when the pitcher throws a lot of first pitch strikes, but we also give em 20 fly/groundouts. PATIENCE will be the key to victory this weekend. And I certainly hope our fans show up LOUD. We gotta rattle them early and be smart at the plate. AND PLEASE NO DUMB ERRORS!

Pretty much. Beede is a beast. 1.63 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, 74 K, 11 appearances, and 11 wins.
