HOOVER, Ala. — Arkansas begins the SEC baseball tournament against a familiar foe.
We just don’t know when.
And the Razorbacks are hoping the results work out better that they did over the weekend playing the same team in the same state.

First pitch is set for 30 minutes following the conclusion of Wednesday’s early game between No. 5 seed Auburn and No. 12 seed Kentucky, which gets underway at 9:30 a.m. The contest will air on the SEC Network and Fubo.tv.
