Team Notes:
The fourth-ranked Arkansas baseball team opened the 2012 season with a three-game sweep of Villanova at Baum Stadium. With its sweep of the Wildcats, the Razorbacks have now won 13 straight games in the month of February. Arkansas scored a total of 41 runs in the three-game series, the most runs in the first three games of the season since the 1997 team scored 60 runs in its first three games. As a team, Arkansas hit .406 in the three-game series, while the pitching staff compiled a 2.42 ERA. Sam Bates started his senior season off in fine fashion, hitting .556 with two homers and nine RBI. Bates homered in each of the last two games of the series and set a new career-high with five RBI in the second game of the series. Matt Reynolds hit .800 against Villanova, going 8-for-10 at the plate with three RBI and five runs scored. Jacob Mahan went 5-for-7 (.714) with three runs scored and three RBI, while Jacob Morris hit .667 (4-for-6) with three RBI and five runs scored. Jake Wise homered in the series finale on Sunday and hit .600 in the series with two RBI and five runs scored. Bo Bigham scored six runs, drove in three, and hit .364 against the Wildcats. On the mound, Arkansas starters DJ Baxendale, Ryne Stanek and Barrett Astin combined to throw 14 innings and allow just one run on six hits with 14 strikeouts. Baxendale and Astin each threw five shutout innings, while Stanek gave up a run in four innings of work. Out of the bullpen, Trent Daniel, Michael Gunn, Cade Lynch, Brandon Moore, Chris Oliver, Nolan Sanburn and Ty Wright each turned in a scoreless outing in the series. More than 16,000 fans came out to the opening series at Baum Stadium, as 16,038 fans saw the three games of the opening weekend. Arkansas continues its 10-game season-opening homestand this week as it hosts Northwestern State on Tuesday and Wednesday and Valparaiso Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Both games against Northwestern State are set to start at 3:05 p.m., while the games against Valparaiso are set to start at 3:05 p.m. on Friday and 1:05 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
