HOOVER, Ala. (AP) -- Wes Rea's three-run homer helped Mississippi
State defeat Arkansas 9-1 Tuesday in the opening round of the
Southeastern Conference baseball tournament.
Rea's home run, his fifth of the season, came in the second
inning off Arkansas starter Ryne Stanek (6-4), who has not won
since beginning the season 6-0.
The Bulldogs (35-21) led 3-1 entering the ninth, then used two
Arkansas throwing errors and a passed ball to scored six unearned
Brandon Woodruff (1-2) struck out five and allowed two hits over
five innings to get the win.
Arkansas (39-18) stranded 11 runners. The Razorbacks left the
bases loaded in the third and hit into inning-ending double plays
in the fifth and seventh.
The Razorbacks' only run came on a sixth-inning single by Matt
Vinson that scored Bo Bigham.
Arkansas' Matt Reynolds reached base for the 40th consecutive
game when he was hit by a pitch in the first.
