Diamond Hogs rolling in SEC

It took two days to play one game, but the No. 14 Arkansas Razorback baseball team took its third straight Southeastern Conference series to start the season over Mississippi State.

Starter T.J. Forrest (2-1) allowed one earned run while striking out four to secure a 5-1 win in the first game of the double header Sunday.

The team improved upon its best start in SEC history after winning the first game of the series Saturday, 20-9.

“Our team is playing really well right now,” Forrest said. “And I don’t think we even showed our bats Saturday like we have been. As long as the pitching can keep it going with the hitting, we will do really well in conference.”

Forrest left the game with two runners stranded, but Mike Bolsinger entered the game and kept the Bulldogs scoreless.

“That was my ERA sitting out there on those bases,” Forrest said. “He came in there and made a great pitch to get the double play. He showed he can come in during clutch situations and get people out.”

In the first inning Friday, senior Scott Lyons provided the team with the first run of the game with his first career home run.
