HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Wes Rea's three-run homer helped Mississippi State defeat Arkansas 9-1 Tuesday in the opening round of the Southeastern Conference baseball tournament.

Rea's home run, his fifth of the season, came in the second inning off Arkansas starter Ryne Stanek (6-4), who has not won since beginning the season 6-0.

The Bulldogs (35-21) led 3-1 entering the ninth, then used two Arkansas throwing errors and a passed ball to scored six unearned runs.

Brandon Woodruff (1-2) struck out five and allowed two hits over five innings to get the win.

Arkansas (39-18) stranded 11 runners. The Razorbacks left the bases loaded in the third and hit into inning-ending double plays in the fifth and seventh.

The Razorbacks' only run came on a sixth-inning single by Matt Vinson that scored Bo Bigham.

Arkansas' Matt Reynolds reached base for the 40th consecutive game when he was hit by a pitch in the first.

    Markus Kittrell is well aware when people speak of Wayne County football, the assumption is the conversation will be of the public school War Eagles. Kitrell and his teammates would like to change that a bit this fall. “When you say Wayne County, everybody knows Wayne County High School, but it’s time for us to put it out there about Wayne Academy, where everybody will know about us,” said Kittrell, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound, two-way lineman for the Jaguars.
