By the Numbers: Chelsea Thomas’ Mizzou career in review
May 21, 2013
Posted by on
Chelsea Thomas is arguably Missouri’s historically best pitcher, ranking at or near the top in several categories. But she doesn’t need to throw a perfect game to be effective. Though the redshirt senior has thrown 11 no-hitters in her Missouri career (three of those were perfect games) she dominates in nearly every game she plays. Thomas’ win-loss record as of May 11 is 111-29 with 1,147 strikeouts in 897 innings pitched. She is averaging 7.45 K’s per game.
Keeping runners off the bases has led to the majority of games she pitches ending with the opposition scoring one run or less. All but one of her games has ended with six or fewer runs.
In the Regional tournament last weekend she picked up two more wins and 16 more strikeouts. Her ERA is 1.14. Missouri hosts Washington in the Super Regional beginning Thursday night, a chance for Thomas to add to these numbers.
Here’s a look at where she ranks among Missouri pitchers, some of the awards and honors she has won and how she has performed over her career, in strikeouts and runs allowed per game.
