    Longwood lead the nation in home runs going into yesterday's game.

    28 runs on 19 hits?

    Did the opposing pitchers even know where the plate was?

    Sounds like they sure found the middle of it.

    Raining Homers
    Tuesday's two-home run outing was Tennessee's 11th multi-homer game of the season and pushed the Vols' nation-leading home run total to 24. Thirteen different Tennessee players have hit home runs, while six Vols have multiple homers.

    Patient at the Plate
    Tennessee drew 18 walks during Tuesday's win over Longwood, bring its season total to 107 – a mark that leads the nation.

    Yeah, but 28 runs on "only" 19 hits. How many freaking walks did we have?

    That is exactly what you are supposed to do to a weea mid-major/low-major in a mid-week game, and we've not been doing it for a long time. Glad to finally see it.

    Feel like we didn’t hit 24 dingers in the whole Todd Raleigh era

    Blowing the Vandy game to some bullshit fake jump pass with like 20 seconds and a bowl game on the line told me everything I needed to know about Butch.

    No idea who is actually good in college baseball but we are destroying people. Cool to see a win over a #1 team.

    They only had 1 error. 18 walks, good lord. 28 runs on 19 hits, and still left 11 on, haha.

    Just looked through the box scores - we've drawn 109 walks in 13 games, good for #1 in the country. We've given up 24 BBs. That's pretty damn impressive.

    National batting stat rankings:
    #1 in the country in runs per game.
    #1 in HRs
    #3 in OBP
    #3 in slugging
    #2 in OBPS (1.018 as a team...)

    National pitching stat rankings:
    #2 in ERA.
    #2 in WHIP
    #3 in K/BB

    That has really surprised me. I had a pretty good feeling about the offense but I didn't think they would have the pitching that they've shown so far. I'm interested to see how that holds up when we get into conference play.

    And that is what he built his offense around, in his words, "gorilla ball"

    if we are only able to win by 1 to 5 runs rather than 10 to 20 runs, I will bear it.

    The level of dominance so far is more than i ever noticed from a Vols team, but i don't follow baseball too closely.

    The 2005 team was pretty damn good

    Them and 2001 are the 2 best since the Helton days. I honestly thought that 05 team could make a run in Omaha.

    95 team is probably best in school history.
