Week in review
Last week the Hogs swept two games from Texas in midweek action at Baum Stadium. Arkansas stayed at home over the weekend when it began SEC play by winning all three games against Kentucky. The Wildcats entered the series ranked No. 4 in the country and had just earned a series win over fellow top-10 team Texas Teach the previous weekend.
Arkansas (16-4, 3-0) scored an average of 11.8 runs per game in the five victories last week. Junior shortstop Jax Biggers led the offensive charge, hitting .588 with 2 doubles, 2 home runs and 7 RBI during the week to earn conference player-of-the-week honors. Casey Martin was SEC freshman of the week after hitting .350 with 3 home runs in the five games. He leads the team with a .393 average, 7 home runs and 22 RBI.
Arkansas is set for another crucial SEC series this weekend with a trip to Florida on tap. The Gators are No. 2 in the latest poll after a midweek win over No. 5 Florida State and a series victory over South Carolina. The three-game set is set to begin Friday at 5:30 p.m. CT.
