ARKANSAS BOWLS THROUGH KENTUCKY

Last weekend, Kentucky was the talk of the town after winning a series over Texas Tech. Now, they were the ones who lost a series, as the Arkansas Razorbacks ran roughshod over them. Jax Biggers and the Hogs took two of three from the Wildcats and soared all the way up to 4th in the country after the series win.

Biggers was incredibly integral in the series win, and earned SEC Player of the Week honors for his efforts. He hit two home runs in the doubleheader against Kentucky on Saturday, one in each game, and went 7-for-9 in the two games played. Casey Martin was also terrific, as he won SEC Freshman of the Week honors. He now has a 13-game hitting streak, as well.

AUBURN TAKES 2 OF 3 FROM A&M

The Auburn Tigers were successful this weekend, as they defeated the Texas A&M Aggies in two of the three games they played. A&M averted the sweep on Sunday, but not after being held to just six runs in the first two games. They could not crack the code against Casey Mize, the SEC’s Pitcher of the Week, as Mize was outstanding on the mound. He tossed 13 strikeouts, his career-high, and allowed only five hits in his 7.1 innings of work.

Will Holland and Steven Williams each slugged homers in the Tigers’ 11-5 win over A&M on Saturday. In response, Will Frizzell and Logan Foster each hit homers of their own in the Aggies’ lone win of the weekend on Sunday.

A CLEAN SWEEP FOR VANDERBILT

The Vanderbilt Commodores kept up their winning ways over the weekend. After dropping one to Eastern Kentucky on Wednesday, the Commodores rebounded with a sweep of Mississippi State. They shut out State 5-0 on Friday and won 10-1 on Saturday. They held the Bulldogs off on Sunday with a 4-3 win to survive the weekend, and they have now won five of their last six.
