Arkansas Beats Ole Miss 2-1 On Wild Pitch Walk-Off In SEC Baseball Tournament

PodKATT

Remember how we beat Baylor on those two HBP's in the super-regionals last year? That strategy came through again!

Have you ever seen the South Park episode where the kids are playing baseball and both teams are trying really hard to lose so they won't have to play anymore? That's what this game reminded me of.

Arkansas had the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth, and Eric Fisher hit the ball in what appeared to be the go ahead hit, but the ball hit Jacob Mahan as he was running from first to second base, causing the force out and preventing any runs from scoring.

In the top of the 9th, Ole Miss picked up a runner on a fielding error, but the Razorbacks were able to get out of it.

Brian Anderson got on base in the 10th with a ground-rule double, then went to third on a single from Dominic Ficociello. Tyler Spoon was walked to load the bases, and then Anderson scored the winning run on a wild pitch.

Barrett Astin was dominant, with a final line of 8 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 91 pitches/58 strikes. Jalen Beeks took the mound for the final two innings and claimed the win.

Both teams scored a single run in the first inning, then it was shutout baseball for the rest of the game until the bottom of the tenth.

Arkansas will play the winner of this afternoon's game between LSU and Alabama tomorrow afternoon at 4:30 central. Arkansas is expected to start Ryne Stanek, who holds a win over LSU from the series in Fayetteville in April.
