RUNS AT A PREMIUM
Through six games this season, the Horned Frogs have tallied just eight runs and no more than two in one game. Of those eight runs, seven have come in the middle four innings.

From the fifth inning on, the team is hitting .243 (28-of-115). In the first four innings, the Frogs are hitting just .092 (7-for-76). The Frogs have yet to record a hit in the second inning this season.

IN A PINCH
A bright spot at the plate through the first six games for the Horned Frogs was the contributions from the bench players. The Frogs have pinch hit 14 times this season and have come through with five hits for a .357 average.

Boomer White, Travis Hennessey and Kevin Daniels all tallied their first career hits as pinch hitters.

In total, the Frogs substitutions are hitting .333 (6-for-18) on the season. Hennessey leads the way with two hits in three at-bats off the bench.

TRADITIONALLY SLOW STARTERS
Since Jim Schlossnagle's arrival on campus, the Horned Frogs have rarely raced out of the gates. The most productive months under his tutelage are more often April and May when the temperatures rise.

Over the course of his tenure, Schlossnagle's teams are just 45-36 in the month of February for a .556 win percentage. The win percentage jumps to .639 (99-56) in March and .763 in both April (122-38) and May (103-32).

A RARE OCCURRENCE
For just the fourth time under the guidance of head coach Jim Schlossnagle, the Frogs were swept in a weekend series. It's just the first time in Lupton Stadium history that TCU failed to win a game in a home series.

The two sweeps in one season is the first occurrence since the 2001 season when Rice swept the home-and-home series.

PASSING THROUGH THE TURNSTILES
Over the past three seasons, the popularity of TCU baseball has reached all new heights. For the second straight season, the Frogs averaged over 4,100 fans per game. Since the start of the 2010 season, the Frogs are averaging 3,831 fans per game.

The Frogs ranked 11th nationally in average attendance in 2012 at 4,112 per game. Additionally, 131,610 fans passed through the turnstiles, a mark that also ranked 11th nationally. Both marks were tops among private schools.

TCU picked up right where it left off last year, averaging 3,975 fans per game this past weekend. That ranks 10th nationally and second in the Big 12.
