FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas can't afford to lose the second game of the final home series against Vanderbilt.
After a rain-delay Saturday night, the game resumed Sunday morning with a seven-inning third game set to start around 2 p.m. but more rain and bad weather is predicted starting about 1 p.m. so everything is rushed.
Including the Hogs, apparently off to a fast start.

Bottom Sixth Inning: Hogs 9, Vandy 6
Arkansas starts fast in the resumed game, as Vandy pitcher Patrick Reilly hit Zach Gregory to start the resumed game, then walked a batter to get replaced by Brett Hansen. The Hogs managed to push across a run and appear seriously more interested in this game than the Commodores.
Seventh Inning: Hogs 11, Vandy 6
Vanderbilt gets a one-out single but can't push anything across.
In the bottom of the inning, the Hogs got a leadoff batter hit with a pitch and Braydon Webb and two batters later Jalen Battles drilled a homer into the Hawg Pen in left field.
Eighth Inning: Hogs 11, Vandy 6
Vanderbilt gets a single but can't do anything with it while the Hogs go down quickly in order.
Final Score: Hogs 11, Vandy 6
Vanderbilt was unable to do anything in the top of the ninth and the series is now tied at a game apiece with the third — and deciding — game set to start at 12:40 this afternoon, an hour and 20 minutes ahead of the originally-scheduled time and everyone is hoping the weather holds off long enough to play the final home SEC series of the regular season.
