FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas baseball closes a two-game set with Memphis tonight in North Little Rock. The Razorbacks are seeking a sweep and the team’s sixth straight win overall.
Arkansas won the first meeting on Tuesday night in Fayetteville easily. The lineup knocked 15 hits and walked another eight times in a 16-7 win, tying the team’s season high for runs.
Wednesday’s game is at Dickey Stephens Park, the home of the Double-A Arkansas Travelers, the Texas League affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. The Diamond Hogs make a yearly appearance in central Arkansas. That is much the same way football and basketball do, as well. The game is also closer for Memphis. Tigers fans would have only about a two-hour drive away from the border city.
The game largely serves as preparation for Arkansas for the weekend. Coach Dave Van Horn’s team heads to Auburn for a three-game set in SEC play starting Friday. The Razorbacks lead the entire SEC with an 11-4 record halfway through the league schedule. Auburn is just a game back at 10-5.
