Not a lot changed in the runs produced category over the weekend. Garrett Boulware leads the team in both runs produced per game and runs produced per plate appearance.
I’ve documented Tyler Slaton’s numbers in this metric before, but it’s worth pointing out that Slaton came to bat with 15 runners on base in the Florida State series and ended up with 1 RBI.
At .17 runs produced per plate appearance it would take roughly 6 plate appearances for Slaton to produce 1 run.
Slaton was not the only Tiger to struggle with runners on in Tallahassee. Garrett Boulware had 0 RBI with 10 runners on base and Steven Duggar had 1 RBI with 8 runners on.
Duggar has come to bat with more runners on than any other Tiger, which makes sense for a guy who has played every game and typically bats third.
Unfortunately for Clemson Duggar’s 12.7% conversion of runners into RBI is approaching the lower end of the team average and 1 for 8 (12.5%) is close to Duggar’s season average and the only regular players below this average are Tyler Slaton and Jay Baum.
