Balanced Offense Pacing Diamond Hogs

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - So far this season, the Razorback baseball team has been impressive with their offense. Tuesday night's game against Missouri State just the latest display from the team, collecting 18 hits and scoring 12 runs, with 8 of the 9 starters finding their way on base. Head Coach Dave Van Horn said he's not shocked to see these types of offensive nights.

"We felt like that our lineup was going to be what we call deeper and longer and extended," said Van Horn. "And basically it seems like the last five years once they get past maybe the first five guys maybe six, it's kind of like lets just see if we can get past these guys maybe one of these guys will get on and we can get back to the top. I don't really feel that way with this lineup.

This team currently ranks 4th in the SEC for batting average with the team hitting .293.But they do more than just hit for average as the lead the league in home runs. Junior Luke Bonfield summed up what this team is doing offensively in one word, incredible.

"We got Jax Biggers who's hitting .300 as our nine hole," said Bonfield. "So i think we got a bunch of guys who could be at the top of any order in the SEC hitting all throughout our lineup."

To keep the bats going against a Georgia pitching staff ranked 5th in strikeouts, junior Chad Spanberger says the team will have to have a simple yet complex approach.

"Knowing and trying to figure out their pattern," said Bonfield. "Taking the ball to all fields."
