The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns are sitting six games below .500 on the season and four games under .500 in conference play.

But, the Cajuns are scoring runs and hitting the ball better.

This year, the Cajuns' hitters have concentrated more on approach and less on technique, and the results speak for themselves.

Here are some comparative numbers over the last five seasons showing the improvement:
