ONE DOWN, TWO TO GO


The SEC West belongs to the Razorbacks. And the next two days will determine if they can win the SEC crown.


No. 1 Arkansas clinched at least a share of the SEC West title, downing No. 9 Florida by a score of 6-1. The Hogs, now 40-10 overall and 20-8 in SEC play, will clinch the SEC West outright with one more win or one Mississippi State loss this weekend.


Who stood out in front of 11,084 fans at Baum-Walker Stadium last night?


1️⃣ Patrick Wicklander: Friday night guy on a Thursday. Wicklander got the start and put in 6.0 innings of absolute work, facing 22 batters and striking out 11 (including this one) while only allowing a single earned run.


2️⃣ Kevin Kopps: The best pitcher on the best team in the country. Kopps came in and earned the save with 3.0 innings of relief, putting down the final 10 batters. Five strikeouts, one walk, zero earned runs... and lots of filthy pitches, like this one.


3️⃣ Cayden Wallace: Any time you go yard twice in the same game, you're gonna stand out. Wallace's first homer was a solo shot that gave the Razorbacks a lead they wouldn't relinquish, and his second was a three-run knockout punch.


4️⃣: You: It's the first conference series at full capacity in Baum-Walker Stadium and Razorback fans did not disappoint. Listen to what 11,084 fans cheering on the Hogs sounds like here.


Arkansas plays Florida in a pivotal Game 2 tonight at 7:00pm CT. You can catch the game on SEC Network.
