DEQUEEN – The Bauxite Miners dropped a 6-5 decision to the DeQueen Leopards on Friday night in 7-4A conference play in DeQueen.

Down 6-2 going into the seventh inning, the Miners (8-10, 2-4 7-4A) scored three runs in the top of the seventh, but fell just short.

“We had the tying run at second and the winning run at first,” Bauxite Coach Michael Mattox said of the last inning. “We had the double steal on, and on the same pitch, we struck out to end the game. We were hoping for a throw there to see what happened, but we didn’t get one.”

Abusing power crossed the line

April 16, 2012

There was no denying his coaching ability. After Houston Nutt pretty much jumped ship, maybe under a little pressure, to the Ole Miss Rebels after the 2007 season leaving the Hogs without very much at all, Bobby Petrino took over for the Razorbacks. After a slow start, Petrino took Arkansas to a Bowl Conference Series bowl in 2010 losing to the scandalous Ohio State Buckeyes – when five players should have been suspended for getting tattoos at a discounted price and selling school memorabilia – but the Hogs finished with a 10-3 record.
