Pitt's baseball team winning with offense ... lots of it

Pitt's baseball team is off to one of its best starts in recent memory with a 5-1 record. The pitching hasn't been bad, but they've done it mostly with offense.

Pitt has scored a total of 53 runs through the first six games of the season - good for an average of nearly nine runs a game. That's pretty good even for the land of 'ping' college baseball. The biggest output of the season came on Sunday when the team piled on for 19 runs against Wofford. There were also 10- and 11- run games in the last two contests against Wichita State.

The fast start, though, is nothing new. The Panthers actually scored more runs last season in getting off to a 2-4 start, piling up 61 runs over those games. Pitt eventually slowed down an finished the season averaging about 5 1/2 runs per game.

Will the offense keep it up? Not likely at this same pace. So it will be important for the pitching to be solid to continue winning games.
