Diamond Hogs change Tuesday start time
Arkansas left fielder Joe Serrano heads to first after hitting a 3-run double during the third inning against South Alabama Friday, Feb. 28, 2014, at Baum Stadium in Fayetteville.
FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas' baseball game against Grambling State has been moved to a 5 p.m. start Tuesday at Baum Stadium.
The move is to accommodate the Razorbacks' basketball team, who will host Indiana State in the first round of the NIT at Bud Walton Arena. That game is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
The Diamond Hogs (9-7) are coming off a weekend series loss at Florida. Arkansas lost 2-1 on Friday and 1-0 on Saturday before beating the Gators 9-3 in the finale Sunday.
The games against Grambling State are the first of seven straight for the team in the state of Arkansas. The Razorbacks host Alabama this weekend and will play Mississippi Valley State next week in both Fayetteville and North Little Rock.
