Razorback Brew 3/29: Geauxing off

Today, Hog baseball starts a huge series with a W.

Good Morning. The Diamond Hogs began this weekend’s series with a statement win over the defending national champions, and a former Razorback made some track history over in Texas.

Here’s what we have for in today’s Brew:

🎥 Catch up with DC Travis Williams
⚾️ Kendall Diggs does it again
🐗 And so much more! 


Arkansas defensive coordinator, Travis Williams, sits down with Hogs+ host Tera Talmadge after practice to give updates on how the Hogs’ defense is coming together.


🔺 Championship Caliber. It was a one-run ball game in the bottom of the eighth inning in Baum-Walker Stadium, and then it wasn’t when Kendall Diggs did what he usually does: send baseballs into orbit.

Kendall’s three-run moonshot gave the top-ranked Arkansas baseball team a 7-3 lead it would hold on to against the defending national champion and eighth-ranked LSU last night to win game one of the series. The Razorbacks also got a combined 18 strikeouts from ace Hagen Smith and reliever Will McEntire on the mound, with the former knocking out 10 batters and the latter eight. It was Hagen’s fifth win of the season (he’s now a perfect 5-0!) and fifth double-digit strikeout outing.

The Diamond Hogs are 6-1 in SEC play for the second time in the last three years and will go for 7-1 and the series win tonight at 7pm on SEC Network.

🔺 Let’s Scrimmage. The 2024 Arkansas football team will hold the first of two open scrimmages tomorrow afternoon inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Fans wishing to attend can park for free in Lot 44 (north of the stadium) and enter Gate 14 on the northeast side of the stadium beginning at 8:30am Saturday morning.

🔺 Just Peachy. The 17th-ranked Arkansas softball team leaves Bogle Park for the weekend for a huge series against third-ranked Georgia in Athens. Head coach Courtney Deifel gives an update on LHP Robyn Herron, lessons from last weekend’s series, and much more in her preview presser.

🔺 Switching Places. The 49th-ranked Arkansas men’s tennis team returns to Fayetteville and the Billingsley Tennis Center after a four-match road stretch to host fifth-ranked Kentucky this afternoon at 5:30pm, and 25th-ranked Auburn on Sunday at noon. Meanwhile, Arkansas’ 40th-ranked women’s team is taking its turn hitting the road for a pair of SEC matches against 27th-ranked Vanderbilt today at 4pm and 63rd-ranked Kentucky on Sunday at noon.

🔺 Run Faster, Jump Higher. Arkansas alum Shafiqua Maloney clocked a meet record time of 2:00.25 seconds in the 800m during Thursday’s session at the 96th Texas Relays, breaking the record set by another Razorback alum, Crishauna Williams, in 2017. The day also included career best performances for Marin Chamberlin in the pole vault and Mary Ellen Eudaly in the 1,500m. Marin finished third in the pole vault with a clearance of 4.25m, which is an absolute PR for her, while Mary Ellen finished fourth in the 1,500m with a time of 4:21.82.

Out west in Palo Alto, the Razorback men open their outdoor season today with distance runners competing in the Stanford Invitational. The evening races for Arkansas start with Jack Williams in the 3,000m steeplechase at 4:03pm, then a crew of five Razorbacks are competing in two sections of the 5,000m at 6:16 and 7:11pm while four others are in two sections of the 10,000m at 8:08 and 9:22 pm (all times in CT).


BIG win for the Diamond Hogs last night, taking down the reigning national champs, LSU. We’ll recap the game, and hear from Arkansas defensive coordinator, Travis Williams.
