Creighton this season has struggled, as the Jays are batting just .244 as a team this season. No qualified Creighton batter hits over .300, as Isaac Collins leads the team with a .293 batting average. Creighton averages 4.2 runs a contest, and gives up an average of 5.0 per game.
Creighton had their best win of the season this past weekend as they defeated a tough Winthrop team in the series opener, before dropping the final two contests. Creighton this season has played the 253rd most difficult schedule in baseball so far this season.
