FAYETTEVILLE – Behind a complete-game performance by Drew Smyly, the No. 7 University of Arkansas baseball team won its ninth-consecutive game with a 10-2 win over Georgia Friday night in front of an announced crowd of 9,047 at Baum Stadium. Smyly struck out seven Bulldog hitters and walked none en route to posting the first complete game of his career. Andy Wilkins led the Hogs’ offensive charge with four RBI, while Bo Bigham reached base five times and scored three runs.

“In the first inning, (Smyly) got a couple pitches up,” head coach Dave Van Horn said. “He settled in from the second inning on, obviously, and he gave us a chance to settle in a little bit, too. In the first inning, both teams got after it, offensively, but then after a couple of innings, we just started chipping away. Two here, one there and we got a couple of two-out hits that us a three-run lead. We played a solid game and slowly pulled away. But the key to the game was Drew Smyly. He did a good job for us.”

FAYETTEVILLE - Brett Eibner pitched seven solid innings and collected four RBI at the plate to lead the No. 7 University of Arkansas baseball team to a 10-2 win over Georgia Saturday afternoon at Baum Stadium. With the victory, the Razorbacks clinched their 10th consecutive win, the longest streak since the 2005 club reeled off 12 in a row. Leadoff hitter Collin Kuhn also starred for Arkansas (30-6, 11-3 SEC) with a 4-for-5 performance, falling a home run short of hitting for the cycle. The Hogs also extended their streak of tallying at least 10 hits to 15 games.

“It was the same type of game (as Friday),” head coach Dave Van Horn said. “They scored, then we got the lead and kept the lead and added to it. (Georgia) hit some balls hard and we made some good plays in the field. We hit the ball hard, too. I’m just glad the rain didn’t come in and affect the game in terms of causing a delay.”

Game 3

FAYETTEVILLE – The No. 7 University of Arkansas baseball team extended its winning streak to 11 games with a 13-5 victory over Georgia Sunday afternoon at Baum Stadium. Bo Bigham was 3-for-4 at the plate with two RBI and Andy Wilkins tallied three RBI in the finale against the Bulldogs. Monk Kreder hit his second home run of the season to push his hitting streak to 19 games, while Zack Cox extended his own hitting streak to 12 contests.

“It was a great weekend for our team,” head coach Dave Van Horn said. “We played two solid games on Tuesday and Wednesday that propelled us into this weekend. I was wondering at the beginning of the week if we’d have enough pitching to get through New Mexico. I figured there would be some high-scoring games out here (against Georgia) where we’d have to go through some pitching, but, really, it was high scoring where we did most of the scoring. We pitched well, played pretty good defense, were very aggressive on the bases and, obviously, we did a great job offensively.”
