Arkansas Takes Two From Georgia
That was statistically the worst inning of Schmidt's career. The big blow was Gordon Beckham's two-run home run that cleared the 40-foot pine trees beyond the left-field fence. Georgia starter Stephen Dodson struck out six and turned in his second consecutive complete-game victory. The Razorbacks tied a season-low with only four hits, two which came from Jake Dugger. Logan Forsythe had his 15-game Southeastern Conference hitting streak snapped. ON SATURDAY ... Arkansas 7, Georgia 6 (10 innings): Danny Hamblin's solo home run off the scoreboard in right-center field in the 10th inning let Arkansas escape after blowing a four-run lead in the ninth inning. Hamblin also hit a two-run homer in the third. Duke Welker went five innings and allowed just one run on six hits, but he was pulled after just 67 pitches. Brian McLelland and Chris Rhoads struggled in relief, and Travis Hill gave up a pair of two-run homers in the ninth inning that forced extra innings. Hill recovered to retire the Bulldogs in order in the tenth. ON SUNDAY ... Arkansas 9, Georgia 3: Jess Todd tossed his first career complete game and improved to 5-2 this season as Arkansas closed out the series victory. Todd allowed just six hits and gave up three runs (two earned) in going four innings further than his previously longest start. Matt Willard had four hits, a career-high, to lead a 12-hit Razorbacks attack. Arkansas held a 6-2 advantage in the ninth inning when Brian Walker drilled a two-out, three-run home run to right field. Walker, Forsythe and Jeff Nutt added two hits apiece. 3 UP 1. Arkansas turned a season-high four double plays — in the third, sixth, seventh and ninth innings. 2. Four Razorbacks had multi-hit games — Matt Willard (four), Logan Forsythe (two), Jeff Nutt (two) and Brian Walker (two). 3. Georgia's Ryan Wooley was the first Bulldog out of the bullpen, and he struck out four batters in 3 2/3 innings. 3 DOWN 1. Bulldogs starter Nathan Moreau lasted just 3 2/3 innings and allowed five runs (all earned) on seven hits. 2. Georgia's Gordon Beckham got only a ninth-inning single, instead of more, when third-base umpire John Whitaker let the ball strike him in the leg. 3. In the second inning, with no outs and Jake Dugger on first, Willard popped out on an attempted sacrifice bunt.
