With an RPI and strength of schedule lower than usual this time of year, Arkansas needed a resumé-building win at Auburn this week.
The Razorbacks got it Sunday with a 7-4 victory over the Tigers. Arkansas, which won 11-8 on Friday and lost 5-3 on Saturday, notched its biggest series win of the year because of who the Razorbacks beat and where it happened.
Auburn’s No. 18 ranking in the USA Today Baseball Coaches Poll is a bit misleading. Coming into the weekend the Tigers were projected as the No. 6 national seed for the NCAA Tournament by D1Baseball.
