Tigers 7, Razorbacks 2: Debbie Downer

Matt Ryerson-US PRESSWIRE

28-18 (10-11)

What a let down.

There was very little exciting about the second game of the doubleheader for the Diamond Hogs. Chris Oliver couldn't find the plate. The defense turned routine plays into what looked like snowball fights. There was hardly any hitting to speak of and Hog fans left Buam saying, "Dammit, what was that?"

After defeating three straight ranked teams in as many starts, one would think he would be ready to go. He never found a groove, or the strike zone. He walked five batters in three innings of work. That's averaging 15 walked batters per nine innings.

Beside the sixth inning, when Blake Baxendale had a two RBI-double, there was hardly any offense to talk about. Arkansas had one runner reach scoring position, if you don't include the sixth inning.

This was the first home SEC series the Razorbacks have lost this year. Also, this was the first SEC series Auburn has won in its last four series.

The one aspect of the game that was successful was ticket sales. A record 11,742 tickets were bought for the doubleheader, and 10,217 showed up, good enough for the 6th largest crowd in Baum's history.

Next up for the Diamond Hogs is a trip to Springfield, Mo for a Tuesday game that starts at 4:05 p.m. It is a neat deal because it is a part of a doubleheader in which the Northwest Arkansas Naturals take on the Springfield Cardinals after the college game.
