Washington Baseball: By the Numbers

Posted: Thursday, August 10th, 2017 at 7:00 am

Another successful Demon baseball season is in the books for Washington and it is time to look back at how it unfolded.

The Demons finished the year 18-16 and third in the Southeast Conference. They went through their best stretch of the season right off the bat winning their first seven contests. The senior-heavy group proved to be a tough out at the plate recording the second-fewest strikeouts in the conference with 184. As a team, they had a .295 batting average and knocked in 178 runs, fourth in the conference for both categories. The Demons helped their pitchers out on the defensive side recording the second-fewest errors in the league with 77. Pitching depth was key for the Demons as they led the conference with the lowest opponent batting average with .198.

Individually, Washington was led by Ryan Loy with a .360 batting average and he knocked in 17 runs. Collin Zear carried the load on the mound with a 2.30 ERA in 45 innings.

The Demons will have to reload as they lose eight starters to graduation.
