Top 5th

Zech K's swinging.  1 out. 

Calbi rips a double down the 3rd base line.

Bax is at 70 pitches now.  Doubt he's in much longer.

Schrenk with a slow chopper over the mound, Carver charges, and makes a really nice play.  Runner moves to 3rd, 2 outs. 

Fleishman grounds out to 3rd on the 1st pitch.  Inning over.

In other news around the conference, there are some marquee series this weekend involving SEC teams.  Vandy plays at Stanford, Cal St. Fullerton plays at Florida, and Ole Miss plays at TCU.

Bottom 5th

Wise with a leadoff single.

Morris pops out to the 3rd baseman.  1 out.

Carver grounds into the 5-4-3 double play.  I will make no further comment.  Inning over. 

Hogs lead 9-0 after 5.

Top 6th

Bax is done for the day and freshman lefty Mark Reyes is making his first appearance in a Razorback uniform.  He's supposed to be a good one.  The hogs have also switched out most of their defensive players. New guys everywhere and I'm confused.

Someone got a leadoff double.

Jones flies out and the runner advances.  Runner on 3rd, 1 out.

Wager grounds out to short but a run scores.  2 outs. 9-1 Hogs.

Rambaud drops a bloop single into left center.   Runners on the corners.

Catcher Brandon Clark is pinch hitting for the other catcher, Nelson.

Reyes throws to first, Ficociello throws to 2nd, and they pick off Rambaud.  Inning over. 

Hogs lead 9-1 after 5 1/2.

Bottom 6th

Lots of new guys coming up.

Freshman lefty Brian Anderson takes his first at bat as a Hog and is hit by the pitch.

Mahan (now playing 2nd) with a little chopper, nobody covers first, and he is safe!  Both the pitcher and first baseman charged the ball and nobody covered first.  Runners on 1st and 2nd, no outs.

Ficociello draws a walk.  Bases loaded, no outs.

Jimmy Bosco (a transfer OF from Cal) grounds to 2nd.  A run scores, and Ficociello's slide at 2nd keep Nova from turning two.  Runners on the corner, 1 out.  10-1 Hogs!

Freshman Michael Gunn flies out to deep right.  Mahan scores, 2 outs.  11-1 Hogs!

Freshman Joe Serrano K's looking.  Inning over. 

Hogs lead 11-1 after 6.

Top 7th

Reyes still on the mound.

Clark draws a leadoff walk.

Zech walks.  Jorn is out on the mound talking to Reyes.

Calbi K's swinging. 1 out.

Suggs is throwing in the bullpen. 

Geenan will DH for Schrenk in the DH spot.  Geenan walks.  None of those pitches were close and Reyes is done.  Sophomore righty Colby Suggs will take over with the bases loaded and 1 out.  Last season Suggs made 12 appearances, had a 2-1 record, and a 0.90 ERA.

Sciacca K's swinging.  Ball got away from Wise but he recovered quickly and the runners can't advance. 2 outs.

Fleishman hammers an 0-2 pitch over the wall in left for a grand slam.   >:(  11-5 Hogs.  He was killing people with his fastball, but then hung a curve.

Jones singles up the middle.

Wager grounds out to 3rd.  Inning over.

Time for the 7th inning stretch and the Hogs lead 11-5.

They have a guy named Rambo.  He just struck out.

We have a Serrano and he struck out so it's a wash. Hope he has hats for bats.

Thanks for the pbp ups!

Great! My iHog app quit working. At least I was able to listen to almost 7 innings. Haven't been able to listen to any basketball games lately.

BTW, Brian Walker is our first base coach now.

He was also our first base coach last year too.   :D
Although Brian does the chicken wing during the AQ Chicken winning inning, it is not quite as good as coaches in the past.  Brian's chicken wing motion is more nonchalant.

Today's opening day attendance is 6,317.  Suggs is still on the mound.

If we had this many fans at a game last year I bet the attendance would be announced closer to 8K.  There were a lot of people for a 3PM Friday afternoon game.  With the new scanners, the attendance figures are more accurate, and will likely be lower.

Yeah, if that was 6k then we have never had 10k in Baum.  I would have guessed the attendance at 8-9k.  There were some empty seats, but there were also a lot of people standing and watching on the concourse. 
I got the glory, got the fame, the money, the jewels, the cash, the denali, getting drunk on the reg. fricking good times on the reg, yachts on the reg, sex on the reg, basically all the aMm men fantasize about.

Something interesting I heard Irwin say on the Shawn and Wally show earlier- Nova's starting pitcher dug a hole on the mound with his cleat (which he does every game) and Bax didn't like it.  Not like you need an excuse for giving up 0 runs and 4 hits in a win, but I guess it made him a little uncomfortable. 

He was also our first base coach last year too.   :D

Doh!  I'll chalk this up to early season rust.

My son plays for one of the Express teams, digging a hole is #1 on the Bax pet peeve list.

UDGB is going to have a rough, rough time adjusting to SEC baseball.  The Big XII North didn't have competitive baseball at all.
