Notes: UF outfielder Ryan Larson, who was hit in the head by pitch in the first inning Friday, had a CT scan and doctors found a small fracture, according to the SEC Network.
Even while allowing five walks, Razorback pitchers Dominic Taccolini, Matt Cronin and Josh Alberius did not give up a hit through seven innings, after which the tournament's 10-run mercy rule went into effect.
"I thought it ended up being a good game at the end".
Centerfielder Dominic Fletcher came up throwing and almost beat Duplantis at the plate, but his slide came in just ahead of Grant Koch's tag to make it 4-1.
"Proud of my team. We went out there and our pitchers pitched awesome and we played with a sense of urgency".
The Razorbacks were playing their second game of the day. "They gave it a great effort".
Next, South Carolina now awaits word on the announcement of the 64-team field for the 2017 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament. The Tigers have now won 11 games in a row and 16 of their last 18.
The Tigers (43-17) cruised into the game before claiming their 12th SEC tournament title and sixth under coach Paul Mainieri.
"We've got three down and three to go", Mainieri said.
Trump Makes Stop in Israel and Palestine, Criticized Iran
The Trump Administration is said to be trying to put together a " common set of principles " from which everyone can negotiate. Israel seized east Jerusalem during the 1967 war and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the worldwide community.
"We didn't want to lose that game obviously. I have the utmost respect for Dave Van Horn, his staff and all their players". Spanberger finished the tournament as the leader in RBIs (10), doubles (3), home runs (5), and total bases (26).
Walker (7-1) left with two outs in the eighth inning having allowed one run in 16 2/3 innings against the Razorbacks this season. "I was able to locate on both sides with my fastball". "That's a good lineup".
"We have to credit Arkansas, they can swing the bats really well", UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan said. We're here to play, and we're here to win. He said afterwards that it was the first time in his career he has hit three home runs in a single game.
The freshman right-hander struck out six in the first three innings - including once with runners on second and third for the second out in the second.
Arkansas' Chad Spanberger has hit five home runs, one away from a tournament record.
Spanberger blasted a solo home run in the first inning, a two-run shot in the third before capping his day with a grand slam in the fourth. It is the fifth time LSU has double up on SEC Championships in the same season, and in 1993 and 2009, that lead to some pretty special finishes.
SC finished the SEC Tournament with eight homers and now have 58 on the year.
Arkansas is one of four SEC schools selected to host a regional, along with LSU, Florida and Kentucky. The Tigers only got one more run in the sixth inning on a sacrifice fly by Nick Coomes that scored Antoine Duplantis. LSU center fielder Zach Watson, just a freshman, has been an impact player at the plate and in the field this tournament.
Fletcher made the catch and his throw to the plate was slightly off line. Grant Koch then singled and Jared Gates walked.
