Mississippi State will look to sweep the Razorbacks in Baum Stadium for the second time in as many trips when they play the series finale at 1 p.m. today. They handed the Hogs a 13-4 loss on Saturday and a 5-3 loss Friday.
"I see signs like that every where," Polk said. "So that's not unusual, but we have been very fortunate to play pretty well here lately."
They've won seven of the last eight games in Baum Stadium and are 12-3 against the Hogs (home or away) since 2001.
Obviously, Polk is pretty fond of Baum, especially since 3,018 diehards showed up for a cold, rainy game on Saturday.
"It was a great crowd for a bad day," Polk said. "I'm not sure many places would draw this kind of crowd in this kind of weather.
"But at the same time, this is a beautiful facility and they know how to manage the game. The music is great, they know how to use the scoreboard and the public address guy (Larry Shank) is the best I've ever heard.
"It's just a really sharp place."
Arkansas entered this weekend's series playing some of its best defense of the season, but have committed six errors in two games
The four errors Saturday were the most since a 15-4 win against Illinois-Chicago on March 5.
In the last four games, the Razorbacks had four errors combined and Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn couldn't explain the defensive fallout.
"What can you say?" Van Horn said. "We're catching somebody differently (regular Brian Walker as been ill) and you make a change here and there and the middle infield wasn't playing real well.
"Thanks goodness, we've got (today's game)."
Hogs senior Clay Goodwin's batting average is below .300 for the first time in his career, but he has displayed more power with his third homer, a solo shot in the seventh, in just 83 at-bats.
Last season, Goodwin hit four homers with a .319 batting average in 226 at-bats.
"I'm not trying to hit home runs," Goodwin said. "I'm just trying to get my stroke going because I've been struggling."
Legging It Out
A swinging bunt, or a soft grounder down the third-base line, with one out on the sixth inning helped Arkansas senior Casey Rowlett extend his Southeastern Conference-best hitting streak to 22 games.
Mississippi State's Joseph Hunter went 1 for 5 to extend his team-leading hitting streak to 16 games.
