Hogs To Play Doubleheader Today

FAYETTEVILLE -- Arkansas' series opener against Northern Colorado was postponed due to severe storms in Northwest Arkansas on Tuesday night.

The No. 14 Razorbacks led 3-2 when play was halted prior to the bottom of the fourth inning. It was suspended after a one hour, 32-minute delay. It will be resumed at 4 p.m. today and the final of the two-game series will start no earlier than 7:05 p.m.

Arkansas (22-6) scored three runs in the first two innings to take the early advantage on Northern Colorado (9-22) before the rain came.

Craig Gentry set the tone by leading off the game with a double down the left-field line. He moved to third on a passed ball before scoring on ground out to short by John Henry Marquardt. Two outs later, Danny Hamblin doubled and came in on Brock Bond's single to left to give the Hogs a 2-0 lead.

In the second, Arkansas added another run when Chris Hollensworth singled up the middle, moved to third on Ben Tschepikow's single to right and scored on a single to right by Gentry.

Northern Colorado cut it to 3-2 in the fourth when Grady Gorman ripped a two-out, two-run single to right field off Hogs starter James Gilbert, who didn't allow a hit until that inning.

Gilbert, using a balance of fastballs and breaking balls, retired 9 of the first 11 batters he faced before giving up three hits in the top of the fourth.
