SEC Weekly Roundup (Feb. 23-25): The Last Three Unbeatens

Georgia, Alabama, and Texas A&M are the only three SEC teams remaining without a loss through the first two weeks of the season. 

The Bulldogs nearly lost that streak this past weekend with Saturday and Sunday’s games both being 1-run games. Both games ended in walk-off fashion with Georgia, including a 4-run ninth on Saturday. 

Texas A&M and Alabama have dominated on the mound and at the plate to being the season. The Crimson Tide has a team ERA of just 1.31 with a league-leading .364 batting average. 

The Aggies have a 0.76 team ERA while scoring 80 runs in just 7 games. Top transfer, Braden Montgomery, and Jace LaViolette are leading the charge on offense with a combined 8 home runs and 27 RBI. 

Big Non-Conference Winners

Tennessee started the year with a big win over Texas Tech and also took down Baylor in the Shriners Children’s College Showdown. 

Auburn is coming off a big weekend in which they took down a ranked Iowa team on Friday 7-5 and then run-ruled Wichita State on Saturday. They did drop a game to Virginia on Sunday but it was a competitive 6-4 game. 

The Razorbacks have struggled to get the offense going early, but they did manage a couple of 1-run wins this past weekend in the Kubota College Baseball Series over Oregon State and Michigan with a loss to Oklahoma State in 14 innings between the two wins. 

Time to Worry

Vanderbilt is off to a slow start at 5-3 with losses to Florida Atlantic, Dayton, and Gonzaga. They’ve also had some close wins as well (to be fair, on the flip side two of their loses were by 1 run). 

The bullpen appears to be a big issue for the Commodores right now that they’ll need to figure out. 

A 4-4 start is not what both Ole Miss and Mississippi State were hoping for coming off their down seasons of 2023. 

Missouri is just 4-3 after losing games to San Diego State and UC San Diego this past weekend. To their credit, they did travel out to California to play those games. 

Early Season Standouts

Georgia standout Charlie Condon is batting .643 through two weekends with 18 hits. South Carolina’s Dylan Brewer (.560) and Florida’s Jac Caglianone (.545) are also batting over .500 early on. 

I mentioned Laviolette who is tied for the conference lead in home runs with 5 along with Alabama’s TJ McCants (Ole Miss transfer) and Gage Miller. 

Cooper Weiss for Auburn leads the way with 6 stolen bases followed by Jacob Humphrey (Vanderbilt), Calvin Hewett (Vanderbilt), and Devin Burkes (Kentucky) with 5. 

Luke Holman (Alabama transfer) is now dominating for the defending College World Series champs in LSU with 12.1 scoreless innings to start the year and 18 strikeouts. 

Hagan Smith (Arkansas) had a 17 strikeout performance this past weekend. That puts him in the conference lead with 19 along with Ryan Prager (Texas A&M) and Mason Molina (Arkansas). 

Prager also hasn’t been scored upon to start the year in 11.2 innings.
