The weekend wrapped up with a pretty active slate as a glut of the teams of the SEC were in action. With the exception of a few, many of the games that occurred on Sunday were laughers. Ole Miss took it to URI, defeating them 18-4 and Arkansas took down San Diego 13-1.
Then there was Georgia’s 12-0 shutout win over Dayton and Ole Miss did it again, this time to Houston, winning 12-3. Tennessee scored 30 combined runs and allowed just one in victories over Northern Colorado and Oregon State, while Auburn beat down Mercer 10-1.
Florida winning 5-0 over FIU seems paltry, doesn’t it?
The only exceptions were mostly on the losing end, but LSU grabbed two victories to the tune of 7-4 and 2-0 over Georgia Southern and Central Arkansas. Alabama fell to UL Lafayette 7-0, Texas A&M edged out Stephen F. Austin 8-7 and finally, South Carolina fell to Louisiana Tech 5-1.
Four teams in the conference now check in with unbeaten records. Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas A&M have yet to take a loss this season, with the Bulldogs leading the charge with 12 wins. South Carolina was the most recent to be knocked from the 0-loss club, and finds themselves among Auburn, Florida and LSU with one loss. To be fair, that’s not awful company to be in.
Alabama’s two-game losing streak has put them on skates, while Ole Miss, who has the same record (7-2) is feeling the opposite as they’re riding a four-game winning streak. Rounding out the standings are MIzzou, Mississippi State and Kentucky, all of whom were not in action on Sunday.
