Mizzou Baseball Quotes & Notes: By the Numbers

Senne moves through history, leads baseball to solid weekend series (mutv23sports.com)
After a four-run start for Boston College, marked by a three-run homerun from John Spatola, the Tigers evened the score in the second inning, with Michael Liberto earning two RBI in the first and Aaron Senne hitting his 30th career homerun in the second, moving him into the sole 9th spot. His next two homeruns will move him into a tie for eighth all-time
An average wOBA [weighted on-base average] in the majors is about .330. In college, the average is going to be higher because the quality of pitching a batter faces is worse. Currently, the average for the Big 12 is around .380.
Now that the explanations are out of the way, here's a look at where Missouri batters stand in the league's top 64 wOBAs:

6. Mike Liberto, .540
11. Aaron Senne, .483
37. Brett Nicholas, .368
46. Jonah Schmidt, .330
49. Blake Brown, .329
61. Conner Mach, .215
