Arkansas (41-16) used a six-run sixth inning to break open a 1-1 game and send MSU home.
With a big lead, Reindl finished off the game on the mound, keeping Mississippi State hitless over the final 2.1 innings and setting down seven-straight batters. He had lowered his ERA from 3.23 to 3.00 entering the seventh. The Bulldogs defeated Arkansas with a comeback win Thursday morning to earn a spot in that game. Before giving up the home run to Cody Brown in the seventh inning, Knight had retired 15 of the last 18 batters he faced since the second inning and had not allowed an extra-base hit over that span. He's allowed two hits, fanned seven and walked a trio while throwing 85 pitches. The Hogs used five pitchers in the ninth inning alone. It was just one of those games that got away from us early and like I said, you've just got to credit Arkansas. "He has a really good breaking ball". The board's reading 88-90 [mph], and they're swinging and missing it. A regular-season resume that includes seven SEC series victories and an RPI ranking firmly in the nation's top 50 should be enough to get Thompson's team into an NCAA Tournament Regional when the selections are announced Monday night.
Game 14: No. 4 Arkansas vs.
But just like Cole Lipscomb and Calvin Coker on Wednesday, Daniel ran out of gas in his fourth inning of work.
Mississippi State did respond with a run of its own in the second inning after getting a couple of runners on by singles. "It's kind of hard to believe looking back that seven walks and we can't score a run or eventually get a hit". Jax Biggers then roped a single to plate another and a fourth run scored via a wild pitch.
Arkansas' hot hitting continued on Saturday as the Razorbacks jumped out to an 8-0 lead after two innings. Replays showed Tolbert bent his left foot back while hitting the third base bag.
Game 13: No. 3 Kentucky vs.
Gridley, who brought in a 10-game hitting streak, went 0 for 4.
LSU holds a 9-3 all-time tournament record against Arkansas. This was the first time in SEC Tournament history there has been a no-hitter, and the first time in Auburn history the Tigers have failed to record a hit.
