Arkansas baseball currently holds a one-game lead in the SEC West over Mississippi State. They'll look to extend that lead with a three-game home stand against lowly Georgia, who has the fourth-fewest wins in the conference.

And with Mississippi State visiting a South Carolina team that has been red hot at home this year, it looks likely.

How can the Razorbacks ensure they clean up this weekend? Let's have a look...

1️⃣ Power Outage: Georgia is near the bottom of the SEC in doubles (11th), home runs (12th), and on base percentage (12th), and RBIs (12th). This is a low-scoring Bulldog team and the Razorbacks should be able to take advantage with one of the best groups of pitchers in the country.

2️⃣ Grind It Out: On the flip side of the roster, Georgia pitchers are only allowing 3.82 earned runs per game. That's good for fifth in the SEC and a little better than Arkansas.

3️⃣ Rock, Meet Hard Place: Arkansas is batting .282 as a team, above average for the conference. They're leading in home runs (76) and runs scored (347), and just one away from the conference lead in RBIs (309). But all those things require putting the bat on the ball. With Georgia pitchers only allowing opposing batters to hit .223 (fourth in the SEC) it'll be a simple battle between Razorback batters and Bulldog pitchers for who wins this weekend.

Arkansas baseball will be hosting Georgia all weekend long at Baum-Walker Stadium. Game 1 is tonight at 6:30pm CT on SEC Network+.
