Tennessee Weekly Notes

Tennessee dropped back-to-back one-run games to MTSU and Georgia to open the week before Mother Nature intervened and forced the cancellation of the final two contests against the Bulldogs due to steady rain most of the day Saturday and all day Sunday.

On Tuesday, the Blue Raiders had two players hit a pair of home runs each as they squeaked past UT, 7-6. A.J. Simcox led a 10-hit Orange and White offensive attack, going 3-for-4 with an RBI. Vincent Jackson and Will Maddox also had two hits in the contest, with Maddox driving in a run and stealing two bases. One of those stolen bases was a straight steal of home, the third time a Vol has accomplished that particular feat this year.

The Big Orange found itself in a deep hole heading into the bottom of the ninth against Georgia down 8-3 on Friday but managed to rally to score four runs and load the bases before Maddox was caught trying to steal home for the second time in two games with two strikes and two outs to end the game with the Bulldogs on top, 8-7.

The Vols have now played 17 one-run contests this season, marking the second-highest total in school history behind only the 2005 and 2007 season when they played 18 one-run games. The Big Orange is 6-11 in those games this season with the 11 one-run losses standing as the most in the 104-year history of the program.

Tennessee will next be in action on Wednesday when it hosts Arkansas State at 6 p.m. at Lindsey Nelson Stadium. The Big Orange will then begin the trek to Fayetteville, Ark., for a three-game series against No. 14 Arkansas at Baum Stadium. Game times are set for 7:35 p.m. ET on Friday, 7:05 p.m. ET on Saturday and 2:05 p.m. ET on Sunday. The series finale will be broadcast on Cox Sports Television.
