How they got there
In baseball, a team’s success is measured by its record in the standings. A team’s record is the number of wins and losses it has accumulated over the course of a season. A team’s winning percentage is simply its winning percentage. The teams with the best records in baseball are said to be in first place.
The teams that are in first place at the end of the regular season (usually late September) advance to the playoffs. In October, the playoffs determine which team will win the World Series baseball’s championship.
The team that wins the most games in a season is not necessarily the champion. In fact, in some years, the team with the best record may not even make it to the playoffs!
What they need to do to stay on top
The race for the top spot in the OVC baseball standings is heating up! Here’s a look at what each team needs to do to stay on top of the pack:
-E Kentucky: The Colonels have a comfortable lead in the standings, but they’ll need to keep winning to maintain their position. They’ve got a tough road ahead, with series against Murray State and Jacksonville State
–Murray State The Racers are right behind E Kentucky in the standings, and they’ll need to keep winning to have a chance at the top spot. They’ve got a tough road ahead, with series against E Kentucky and Morehead State
–Morehead State The Eagles are further behind in the standings, but they could make a run at the top spot if they can string together some wins. They’ve got a tough road ahead, with series against Murray State and Jacksonville State
What the other teams need to do to catch up
In order for the Cincinnati Reds to take the lead in the Central Division they would need the Chicago Cubs to lose 2 games and the Milwaukee Brewers to lose 3. The Pittsburgh Pirates are 3.5 games back, so they would need to go on a Winning Streak and have the Brewers and Cubs both lose a significant amount of games. In order for the Cubs to stay in first place, they need to win more games than they lose and hope that the Reds and Brewers continue to lose.
The teams that are currently struggling
The OVC baseball standings are important to keep an eye on as the season progresses. Currently, the teams that are struggling the most are Austin Peay and Tennessee Tech. Here is a look at how these two teams stack up against the rest of the conference.
-Overall record: 14-21
-Conference record: 3-9
-Last 10 games: 4-6
-Overall record: 13-20
-Conference record: 2-10
-Last 10 games: 2-8
Why these teams are struggling
The 2019 Major League Baseball season is in full swing, and there have been plenty of surprises so far. Among the most surprising teams are the San Diego Padres and the Toronto Blue Jays who are both off to hot starts. But there are also a few teams that are struggling early on, including the Baltimore Orioles and the Detroit Tigers
So why are these teams struggling? There are a few reasons.
For one, both the Orioles and the Tigers have had issues with their starting pitching. The Orioles’ starters have an ERA of 5.90, which is among the worst in baseball. The Tigers’ starters haven’t been much better, with an ERA of 4.81. This has put a lot of pressure on the relievers and has resulted in some blowout losses.
Both teams have also been plagued by injuries. The Orioles have already lost Key Players like Manny Machado Mark Trumbo, and Chris Davis to injuries, while the Tigers have lost Miguel Cabrera and Nicholas Castellanos. These injuries have made it tough for these teams to score runs and win games.
Finally, both teams are in tough divisions. The Orioles play in the AL East, which includes powerhouse teams like the Yankees, Red Sox and Rays. The Tigers play in the AL Central, which includes the Indians (who are off to a hot start) and the Twins (who made it to the World Series last year). It’s going to be tough for either team to make a run at a playoff spot if they don’t start playing better soon.
What they need to do to turn things around
The home team always wants to be on top, but in the world of college baseball sometimes it just doesn’t work out that way. Here’s a look at how each team in the Ohio Valley Conference currently stands and what they need to do to improve their ranking.
As of right now, Murray State is leading the pack in first place with a 15-3 record. They’re followed closely by Morehead State who is 14-4. In third place is UT Martin with a 12-6 record, and then Southeast Missouri who is 10-8. Rounding out the top five is Eastern Kentucky who is 9-9.
To maintain their number one ranking, Murray State will need to keep winning games. They’ve shown they can do it so far, but they can’t afford to let any team get too close. Morehead State needs to continue playing well if they want to stay in second place and have a chance at taking first away from Murray State
UT Martin has been playing better as of late and has moved up into third place. They need to keep winning if they want to maintain their current ranking. Southeast Missouri has dropped a few spots recently, but if they can start winning again they’ll be back up in no time.
Eastern Kentucky rounds out the top five, but they need to start winning more games if they want to move up any higher.
So there you have it, the current OVC Baseball Standings and what each team needs to do in order to improve their ranking.
What the other teams need to do to take advantage
With the Ohio Valley Conference Baseball Standings so close, every game matters from here on out. Here’s a look at what the other teams need to do to take advantage of any slip-ups by the top three teams.
Fourth-place Morehead State (16-9, 3-3 OVC) has seven games remaining, three of which are against first-place Jacksonville State (21-5, 6-0). The Eagles also have three games left against last-place UT Martin (10-15, 0-6), so they’ll have a chance to improve their position in the standings.
Fifth-place Tennessee Tech (13-11, 2-4) has six games left, three of which are against Jacksonville State The Golden Eagles also have three games remaining against Murray State (15-10, 3-3), so they could jump up in the standings with a strong finish.
Sixth-place Southeast Missouri (11-14, 1-5) has seven games left on its schedule, four of which are against first-place Jacksonville State. The Redhawks will need to win those games and hope for some help from other teams if they want to move up in the standings.
Seventh-place Eastern Kentucky (9-16, 1-5) also has seven games left, four of which are against last place UT Martin. The Colonels will need to take advantage of those games and pick up some wins against other teams if they want to move up in the standings.
