Postseason baseball is here. Arkansas, the top seed at the tournament, opens play after a first-round bye against Georgia, who defeated LSU by a score of 4-1 last night.
How can Arkansas make sure they're not one-and-done? Let's break it down:
▶️ Fast Start: Georgia scored all four of their runs and half of their hits in the first inning alone. By all accounts, LSU came out flat defensively and it cost them. Lael Lockhart, who has made 11 starts this year, will get the start tonight.
▶️ Bat To Ball: Bulldog pitchers finished seventh in the SEC during regular season play in total strikeouts—averaging just over 10 per game. But last night they got 12, and only allowed LSU to hit .219 as a team. And there were only two innings where LSU got multiple hits. The Razorbacks will need to find a rhythm more often than that.
Arkansas faces off against Georgia to start their SEC Tournament run today at 4:30pm CT. You can watch the game on SEC Network.
