Arkansas struck for six runs in the second inning and pulled away from Georgia for an 11-2 victory in the second round of the SEC Baseball Tournament at the Hoover Met on Wednesday.

The Bulldogs (31-24) will take on Ole Miss at 2 p.m. on Thursday in an elimination game.

Georgia took two of three from then-No. 1-ranked Vanderbilt on the road in Nashville earlier this season.

The Bulldogs also have some momentum against the Rebels, beating Ole Miss 13-2 on Senior Day last Saturday in Athens.

Georgia opened the SEC Baseball Tournament on Tuesday beating LSU in the opening round by a 4-1 count, greatly improving its chances of landing an NCAA Baseball Tournament at-large bid.

The Bulldogs, who have lost four of their top five pitchers to injury, started redshirt freshman Charlie Goldstein (1-1) against the Razorbacks.

Goldstein was replaced in the second inning by Michael Polk, the first of four relievers.
