Game Notes & What To Watch For:
- Both games of Tuesday’s doubleheader will be broadcast on Cox Sports TV, regionally in the Texas and Louisiana area. Games can also be heard on online at arkansasrazorbacks.com. Fans can also follow along on the official SFA Facebook and Twitter pages for the most up-to-date information on all games.
- SFA is 0-2 all-time against the Razorbacks, last facing Arkansas in 2006 at the UTPA Tournament in Edinburg, Texas. The ‘Jacks have not traveled to Fayetteville since the 1989 season, dropping a 9-1 decision that day.
- The Razorbacks mimicked dropped two of three games over the weekend, taking the series opener vs Kentucky before dropping both ends of a doubleheader on Saturday. Still, they have won 21 of 25 games at home overall, dropping just one game at Baum Stadium in non-conference play.
- Sophomore shortstop Hunter Dozier currently leads the Lumberjacks with a .353 batting average and has already eclipsed his home run total from last season with his seven dingers. He ranks in the top 10 in the SLC in batting average, slugging, on-base percentage, hits, runs scored, doubles, home runs and walks. As a whole, SFA leads the SLC with 22 home runs, more than half of its entire season total of 34 in 2011.
- Senior catcher Jarid Scarafiotti recently moved past Steven Hill for the all-time RBI mark at SFA, and now has a chance to move into No. 2 all-time in hits. He is currently tied with Blake Boydston with 188 career hits, which is second all-time. Also, he needs just one more double to become the seventh ‘Jack with 30 for a career.
- Senior stopper Alex Moshier had a rough start to his 2012, allowing a pair of runs in each of his first two appearances; however, since Feb. 26 he has been nearly untouchable. In his eight appearances since Feb. 26, he has tossed 16.0 scoreless innings, allowing just six singles and holding hitters to a .113 average. In that span he has struck out 17 and walked just seven batters.
- Junior Freddy Villalobos has upped his batting average to over the .300 mark, but more importantly since being moved up in the order will enter Tuesday having reached base in 23 consecutive games.
