Weekend Rewind A look back at Ohio State's first 12 games

Over the first three weekends of the season, Ohio State has already played three ranked opponents and six teams that advanced to last year's NCAA Tournament.

EVERY GAME IS A HOME GAME

Despite being over 2,000 away from home, Buckeye fans and alums made Ohio State's four games in Palm Springs, Calif. feel like a home game. BuckeyeNation, you never disappoint.

POWER HITTERS

Ohio State has hit 18 home runs in its first 12 games, the most of any team in the Big Ten.

Alex Bayne leads the squad with six home runs. Four different players have at least three (Bayne, Lilli Piper, Anna Kirk, Taylor White).

IN THE CIRCLE

The Buckeyes' five-person pitching staff has a 2.57 team ERA, led by the duo of Shelby Hursh (1.21) and Lena Springer (2.72).

2,000 MILES BETWEEN STARTS

"I think you could really throw anything at Shelby and she’d be able to handle it."
