The team pitching recaps from the 2010 season are all linked to under the 2010 Season Recap tab. This is the ninth installment, focusing on the Penn State Nittany Lions.
The Penn State Nittany Lions really struggled. They finished 9-15 in the Big Ten and 22-30 overall. As a team, they allowed the 3rd most runs and scored the 4th least — that’s not an ideal combination. They also didn’t have a pitcher drafted in the June draft (only two players total). Even trying to neutralize doesn’t do anything but hurt Penn State even more. They missed very few bats and couldn’t stop walking guys. You don’t need adjusted statistics to know that if you don’t strike batters out and you give up too many free passes, you’re pitching staff will struggle.
