Georgia Walks Off Win Over Arkansas

Due to the potential of heavy rain and thunderstorms expected to move through the Athens area on Friday, the sixth-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks and 16-ranked Georgia Bulldogs have moved up first pitch for game two of their series to 2 p.m. CT. Arkansas plated 6 runs in the inning and not look bad. The Ole Miss win, coupled with Arkansas' 3-2 loss at Georgia earlier in the day, left the two teams tied atop the SEC West with 18-12 conference records. The Razorbacks will be the No. 4 seed by virtue of losing a tiebreaker with Georgia.

Because Arkansas is in contention to win or share the SEC's overall and western division championships, the series could be extended to Sunday if a game is unfinished or unplayed by the end of Saturday, per an SEC rule passed in February that only applies to the final regular-season weekend.

Arkansas will play the late game at the SEC Tournament on Wednesday against the victor of a Tuesday game between No. 5 seed SC and No. 12 seed Missouri.

Georgia clinched a huge series win over Arkansas in dramatic fashion on Saturday afternoon.

It would be hard for the NCAA Selection Committee to get over that fact, and even harder to believe it would reward the SEC with four of eight National Seeds, even if the league deserved them.

The No. 13 Bulldogs took home a 3-2 win, but the Razorbacks almost tied it up in the ninth inning. The very next batter Luke Bonfield launched a 2-run home run to give Arkansas a 5-4 lead. In all, 10 Hogs went up to the plate.
