Pitching Leads Navy Through Nine Games
After graduating the 3- and 4-hole hitters of its lineup in the form of Dave Milanes and Greg Dupell, the Midshipmen offense has been working hard on filling that hole in the heart of their batting order and forming a well-rounded lineup over the first three series ... With the offense still finiding its footing early on, the pitching staff has stepped up in a big way to help the squad win three games and lose four others by two or less runs ... Overall, Navy’s staff has posted a 2.91 ERA over 77.1 innings pitched with 74 strikeouts ... 10 pitchers have appeared in games through nine games with Sam Sorenson and Andrew Bartek leading the team in four games pitched each in relief ... The starting rotation of Anthony Parenti (3-0, 0.92 ERA), Stephen Moore (0-2, 1.89) and Luke Gillingham (0-2, 3.86) has given Navy five quality starts (6 IP/3ER or less) in their nine combined outings.

Base Stealers Beware
The combination of strong-armed catchers and attentive pitchers has helped Navy put its stamp on opponent’s base stealing game. Through nine games, the Mids have allowed just 40% of base stealers to successfully nab extra bases ... Jr. C Jack Keller has allowed just 2-of-5 would be base stealers to reach safely ... Jr. LHP Anthony Parenti leads the pitching staff with only a 25% base stealer success rate.

You’ll Have To Earn It ... No Free Passes
Stephen Moore has continued his mastery of the strike zone in early 2014 action as the junior has yet to walk a batter over his first 19.0 innings pitched ... He is one of 12 pitchers with 10.0 or more innings pitched in Division 1 to have not allowed a free pass ... His 23:0 strikeout to walk ratio can’t be positioned in the NCAA’s computerized rankings due to it being mathematically “undefined”

    NCAA’s Highest Strikeout to Walk Ratios
1. Frank Duncan - Kansas                 27:0    23.1 innings
2. Stephen Moore - Navy                  23:0    19 innings
3. Christian Trent - Ole Miss             19:0    20.1 innings
3. Bryan Bonnell - UNLV                   19:0    22.2 innings
5. Bailey Ober - Col. of Charleston     18.0    18.0 innings
6. Chase Henry - Col.of Charleston    16:0    12.1 innings
7. Evan Manarino - UC Irvine            14:0    16.1 innings
8. Ryan Askew - Mercer                    12:0    14.1 innings
9. Jared Poche - LSU                        10:0    13.0 innings

Seven Game Homestand Finishes Up
This weekend’s four-game series closes out Navy’s first long homestand of 2014 ... After a road game at UMBC on Thursday, the Mids will be home for 10 straight contests leading into Patriot League play.
