Do the Frogs leave more runners
on 3rd with less than 2 outs than any major program in college baseball?
I don't know but I cannot fathom why Nunez didn't smash a hanging 1-1 change-up...just let it flutter in. I don't get the passivity.

EDIT: I guess he wanted to let the WP get runners in scoring position before smashing a change up.
