Another Rain Delay

After several hours of heavy rain and lightning, Arkansas players pulled up the wet tarp covering the infield and got ready for some baseball.

The Razorbacks' game with Oral Roberts was delayed 67 minutes Tuesday night because of the storm that pounded the area with several inches of rain. First pitch was originally scheduled for 6:35 p.m., but it instead came at 7:42 p.m.

At around 6 p.m., lightning struck near Baum Stadium, temporarily knocking out some of the lights behind home plate. Large pools of water collected in the stands behind home plate and in foul territory.

But the field dried quickly after the rain stopped and the tarp was removed. There were no noticeable puddles in the outfield or in foul territory once the game began.

Doing It Himself

Arkansas shortstop Scott Lyons tried to help his team break out of its hitting woes Tuesday night, but he could only do so much.

He recorded the Razorbacks' first two hits of the game, smacking a pair of singles up the middle in the bottom of the first and sixth innings.

But Arkansas' other batters struggled at the plate and were never able to drive him home.

Nice Catches

Arkansas left fielder Collin Kuhn didn't let the stands get in his way of making a pair of impressive catches in foul territory.

Kuhn reached into the stands to snag a foul ball in the top of the second inning, and he repeated the feat in the seventh when ORU designated hitter Johnny Roberts hit a foul ball to nearly the same spot.
