Live Updates: Alabama Baseball vs No. 5 Arkansas

Live stats, information and analysis as the Crimson Tide begins its final SEC series of the regular season against the Razorbacks.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — It's do or die time for Alabama baseball this weekend as it takes on the No. 5 Arkansas Razorbacks at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.

All three of the Crimson Tide's games this weekend have high stakes, with Alabama still looking to clinch a spot in next week's SEC Tournament. Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri and Mississippi State are all still competing for the final two spots in the tournament. Two will advance, and two will have their seasons come to a close.

Even one win in this weekend's series against the Razorbacks could go a long way in securing a spot. Alabama's path to the SEC Tournament isn't entirely in its own control, though. Check out BamaCentral's analysis on Alabama baseball's postseason chances here.

For now, the Crimson Tide and the Razorbacks will take each other on. The stakes are certainly higher for Alabama, but Arkansas is also looking to secure its place as the top team in the SEC West.
