Notes: Senior Zack Godley turned in his fourth complete game in the last five weeks and SEC-best fifth of the season to lead Tennessee to a Friday night win on the road at No. 14 Arkansas, 8-3.
The win was just Tennessee's second in a Friday night SEC-road game over the last three seasons with the only other win belonging to Godley as well as he defeated South Carolina in Columbia last year.
The Bamberg, S.C., native has now been on the mound for four of UT's seven SEC victories this season, going the distance in all four with complete game wins over Missouri, Kentucky, Florida and Arkansas.
He also pitched all nine innings in a loss to South Carolina, giving him five complete games in nine SEC starts, more than 12 of the other 13 league teams have all season. He has as many complete games over the last eight weeks as the entire pitching staffs for Texas A&M, Kentucky, Florida, Arkansas and Ole Miss have combined for all year.
On Friday against the Razorbacks, Godley struck out eight and allowed just four hits to pick up his fifth win of the year and become the first Tennessee pitcher with five or more complete games in a single season since Jamie Bennett had six in 2000. By comparison, the Vols had just five complete games as a team in the 2009-2012 seasons combined.
Godley now leads the SEC with five complete games and 99.1 innings pitched and ranks fourth with 85 strikeouts.
