So a way above average offensive team can’t score enough against FAU and Columbia to win games?
We scoring 4 runs or less in 35% of our games. That doesn’t scream amazing offense to me.
It doesn't matter what it "screams" to you, because you're not coming from a well-informed place: statistics need context and benchmarks to have meaning. For example...
Arizona averages almost 10 runs a game, leading all P5 teams.* They have scored 4 runs or less in 26% of their games.**
The difference between us and the BEST offensive team is
2-3 games (~9% x 29), at least based on this arbitrary metric you selected. If you add enough runs to every game in which we scored 4 runs so as to get us to 5 runs or move (i.e. bring us to 0% scoring 4 or less - which is unrealistic), that would give us 2 additional wins (1 each vs. UF and Columbia) and 1 tie (vs. GT) - basically,
2-3 games.
If you are bent out of shape over
2-3 games, then
@Peter Gibbons is right, you don't understand baseball. Have some perspective.
2-3 games out of 29 is almost meaningless***. There's still a lot of season to play, and if
2-3 games in the second half swing our way, we will end up with a good season (~37 wins) and possibly hosting a regional****. Our starting pitching needs to get going, we probably need to find 1 more reliable RP, and yes, it'd be great if we hit just a tad better.

***Through 30 games, the Yankees, Red Sox, Astros, Cubs, and Indians are 9-21. How many of those teams will make the playoffs? Minimum 3, but probably all 5. (MLB to NCAA is not apples-to-apples, but still.)
