Vinson named SEC freshman of the week

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' Matt Vinson has been selected as the Southeastern Conference freshman of the week.

Vinson capped his week with a game-winning home run in the bottom of the 10th inning Sunday to send the Razorbacks to a 3-2 victory over Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Earlier last week, he had a home run and a pair of triples.

The freshman, from Alma, Ark., led the team during the week with six walks, a .526 on-base percentage and a .909 slugging percentage.

The Razorbacks begin SEC play with a 3-game series at defending national champion LSU this weekend.
