Arkansas baseball vs. James Madison – Game 2: How to watch, stream, listen

The Diamond Hogs take the field for game two of their series with James Madison University.

Friday’s game began with big offensive performances from both dugouts. The runs flooded the scoreboard in the first three innings as Arkansas scored two runs in each while JMU scored 75 percent of its night’s total in the first.

Once each team sat their aces, the pace of play nearly ground to a halt. Will McEntire single-handedly put a stop to the Dukes’ bats while JMU took a different strategy. James Madison played a new pitcher every inning—save Jackson Logar who played two—never allowing the Hogs to get comfortable with a pitcher.

On Saturday, Arkansas will have a fresh bullpen. JMU, on the other hand, might need to start searching for arms to play on Monday if they continue with game one’s strategy. Apart from Hagen Smith’s rough go in game one, James Madison’s batters had a tough time dealing with Arkansas’ pitchers. With a pitching staff as deep as Arkansas, expect to see the trouble persist.

For Arkansas, watch out for Wehiwa Aloy when he comes to the plate. Aloy was the talk of the media this preseason, and after going 0/3 Friday, he’ll be more than motivated to show Arkansas fans what he’s got.
