Will The Real #1 Please Stand Up
In an unprecedented #1 vs. #1 two game series at Baum Stadium, The mighty Diamond Hogs (#1 in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper) took down #1 Arizona State (#1 in some other polls) in a two game sweep Tuesday and last night out at Baum Stadium.
A new record of 11,014 showed up last night to see the Hogs rally from a 5 run deficit to take down ASU 8-7. Freshman Tim Carver had the game winning single in the fifth inning for Arkansas, which to moves to 24-6 on the year. The victory last night follows up the 7-3 victory the Hogs had against ASU on Tuesday night.
Seriously though, collegiate baseball polls must be the equivalent to all of the boxing championship belts out there. How many are there? I don't even know, but can we please go with one or two polls instead of the seemingly 27 different ones out there just to help avoid some confusion?
The #1 ranking is the first ever for an Arkansas baseball team. One thing is for sure, I think we settled the debate for now about who the better #1 team is.
The Hogs return to SEC play this weekend hosting Vandy beginning Friday night.
