Arkansas-Vanderbilt Game 2 time changed
An Arkansas baseball hat sits atop a glove during a game between the Razorbacks and Kent State on Sunday, March 11, 2018, in Fayetteville.
The start time for the second game of Arkansas’ baseball series at Vanderbilt has been changed because of a rainy weather forecast.
The No. 10 Razorbacks and No. 7 Commodores will begin playing at noon Saturday at Hawkins Field in Nashville, Tenn.
The game was originally scheduled to begin at 8 p.m., but the National Weather Service forecast for Saturday night in Nashville calls for a 90 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. There is a slight chance of rain during the afternoon hours.
Because of the start time, the game will be shown online on SEC Network-Plus. It was originally scheduled to be shown on ESPNU.
The Razorbacks (25-8, 8-4 SEC) and Commodores (25-8, 7-5) are scheduled to begin their series Friday at 7 p.m. The series finale is scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m.
