A-State, Little Rock Play Separate Games in Georgia

STATESBORO, Ga. – After being delayed a day due to rain and poor field conditions, two college baseball teams from Arkansas will play single-elimination games today in the 2017 Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

The A-State Red Wolves, seeded No. 7, will open play at 11 a.m. (CT) against Georgia State, the No. 10 seed. The game will be played at J.I. Clements Stadium in Statesboro, Georgia on the campus of Georgia State University.

No. 8 Texas State and No. 9 Little Rock will play the other single-elimination contest at Mill Creek Regional Park at the same time.

There will be another round of games at 2:30 p.m. (CT) before the day concludes with two more games at 6 p.m. (CT). If the Red Wolves win against the Panthers to begin the day, the team would then play No. 2 UT Arlington at 6 p.m. with the venue still to be determined.

Meanwhile, in Alabama, the Diamond Hogs are getting set to play in the SEC tournament.

Inclement weather in the Hoover, Alabama area has delayed today’s games and Arkansas’ first game of the tournament has now been moved to Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m. at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium.

The Razorbacks were scheduled to play the winner of the fourth game of the tournament, which is between Mississippi State and Georgia, but heavy rains and long delays have pushed that game back to 9:30 a.m. Wednesday morning.

With that change, Arkansas will play either Mississippi State or Georgia at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday morning. The loser will play later in the day at 4:30 p.m. The winner will advance to play Friday at a time yet to be determined.
