Hog home run derby: Arkansas baseball clinches McNeese series

Did anyone see Oprah at Baum-Walker today? Because someone was handing out home runs left and right today.

The Diamond Hogs clinched the series today, run-ruling McNeese State in their second game of the day, 11-1.

Kendall Diggs swung the bat that walked off the Cowboys with a single-shot home run to center field. It wasn’t only Diggs that hit dingers today. During the at-bat before Digg, Peyton Stovall—whose first game back from injury was in game one today—smacked another out of the park for three runs.

It was Jayson Jones, however, that started the home run frenzy. His single run homer at the top of the 5th inning was the catalyst that led to 10 runs between the 5th and 8th innings.

Wehiwa Aloy, on the other hand, takes away the prize for the biggest hit of the day. In the same inning as Jones, Aloy showed the state of Arkansas what all the preseason hype was about with a 3-run, 468-foot bomb, clearing the Hog Pen.

Arkansas will try for the sweep of McNeese State tomorrow at 1:00 PM.
