Alabama certainly has improved at the plate the past few weeks, but Clemson put on a show at the Auburn Regional and has a better offensive lineup.
The Crimson Tide enters the weekend with a .298 batting average. Clemson, meanwhile, enters the series with a .306 batting average.
For the Tigers, keep a close eye on Brad Miller, Kyle Parker, John Hinson, Mike Freeman and Jeff Schaus.
Miller is hitting .365 with 18 doubles, seven homers and 41 RBIs, Parker, a high pick in the MLB draft earlier this week, is hitting .356 with 15 doubles, 20 homers and 63 RBIs, Hinson is hitting .341 with 15 homers and 67 RBIs, Freeman is hitting .330 with 22 doubles, eight homers and 55 RBIs and Schaus is hitting .313 with 15 homers and 80 RBIs.
The Tigers enter the Clemson Super Regional with 87 homers.
For the Crimson Tide, keep an eye on Taylor Dugas, Josh Rutledge and Clay Jones.
Dugas has been fantastic this season and is hitting a team-best .393 with 15 doubles, five triples and 36 RBIs. He also has a fabulous .530 on-base percentage and is 19-for-24 in stolen bases.
Rutledge is hitting .365 with 16 doubles, two triples, 10 homers and 69 RBIs, and Jones is hitting .329 with 14 doubles, 17 homers and 65 RBIs.
Also watch for Ross Wilson and Jake Smith, who have eight and 13 homers, respectively, entering the weekend.
There’s a solid chance this series is loaded with runs.
