Nick Schmidt pitched his second complete game of the season and improved to 3-0 in his career against the Volunteers in a 6-2 Arkansas win. Schmidt -- who improved to 6-0 on the season -- allowed just two runs and four hits and struck out nine batters to get his fifth career complete game. The big spark at the plate was a rare two-run sacrifice fly off the bat of Ben Tschepikow in the seventh inning, which scored both Logan Forsythe and Wayne Hrozek to help hold off the Vols. ON SATURDAY Arkansas 4, Tennessee 3 Duke Welker and Jess Todd combined to keep the Tennessee bats quiet for a second day in a row, and Brian Walker delivered a clutch leadoff double in the ninth inning as Arkansas clinched its first series win over the Vols since the 2000 season. Welker held Tennessee to just two hits through six innings before running into trouble in the seventh. Todd then took over and closed the door on the Volunteers' rally, working the final 2 1/3 innings for his fourth win of the season. Walker -- who finished 2-for-4 -- had the decisive at-bat when his leadoff double in the ninth would eventually lead to the go-ahead run. ON SUNDAY Arkansas 11, Tennessee 7 In typical Sunday Southeastern Conference baseball fashion, Arkansas outslugged Tennessee 11-7 to complete its first sweep of the Vols since 1999. The Razorbacks pounded out 19 hits -- led by three hits each from Jake Dugger, Sean Jones, Logan Forsythe and Matt Willard -- and survived a late-inning Tennessee rally to complete the sweep. Freshman Dallas Keuchel worked five innings to get the pitching win and after going through five arms in the bullpen, Brian McLelland finally shut the door on the Vols by getting the final four outs for his first save. 3-UP 1. Arkansas picked up its first SEC road series sweep since April 9-11, 2004, at LSU. 2. The Razorbacks also managed just their second-ever three-game sweep of Tennessee, with the other coming back in 1999. 3. Sean Jones reached base safely in all six of his plate appearances Sunday, finishing with three singles and three walks. 3-DOWN 1. Tennessee starting pitcher Lance McClain lasted just two innings, walking five batters and giving up five runs Sunday. 2. All six of the Volunteers pitchers used Sunday gave up at least one earned run. 3. Despite the win, Arkansas' bullpen allowed six earned runs and 10 hits in just four innings Sunday.
