2013 Game Log

February[edit]

Western Illinois[edit]

Jalen Beeks, a relief pitcher from Prairie Grove, Arkansas, made his Razorbacks debut in game two with Western Illinois

The Razorbacks began the 2013 campaign with a 9–1 victory over the Western Illinois Leathernecks at Baum Stadium. First baseman Eric Fisher, a redshirt sophomore, hit his first collegiate home run in the game, with Jacob Mahan and Brian Anderson both going 2 for 2 at the plate.[3] The following day, the Razorbacks took a 7–2 victory over the Leathernecks with starting pitcher Barrett Astin getting the win. Matt Vinson and Joe Serrano each had 2-RBI singles. Sophomore pitcher Jalen Beeks made his first appearance for the Razorbacks in relief.[4] Trent Daniel gave up six runs (three earned) and received the loss as Western Illinois took the third game, 7–5.[5] The Razorbacks subsequently dropped from #1 in the Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball, and NCBWA polls.[6][7][8]

New Orleans[edit]

Although scheduled to be a two-day series, the Razorbacks and New Orleans Privateers decided to reschedule and play a doubleheader on February 19.[9]
