Arkansas starter Jalen Beeks delivers a pitch during the third inning against South Alabama Friday, Feb. 28, 2014, at Baum Stadium in Fayetteville.

— Arkansas and Auburn will play a baseball doubleheader Saturday beginning at 4:05 p.m.

The decision to play two games Saturday was based on an unfavorable forecast Sunday, which calls for severe weather in Northwest Arkansas. The new Saturday start time was set to accommodate fans who will attend the Razorbacks' spring football game at 1 p.m.

Both Saturday games will be nine innings with the second game scheduled to start 30 minutes following the completion of the first game. Single game tickets purchased for Sunday can be exchanged for any regular season game remaining this season at Baum Stadium, including the ones this weekend.

Arkansas and Auburn are scheduled to begin their series today with a first pitch scheduled for 6:35 p.m. The series opener will be televised by Cox Sports TV. Neither of Saturday's games are scheduled to be televised.

Saturday will mark the sixth time this season Arkansas will play a doubleheader. The Razorbacks are 4-6 in doubleheader games.
