SURPRISE, Ariz. – Kansas State sophomore infielder Jason King went 3-for-3 and capped a big eighth inning with a three-run homer, while starting pitcher A.J.

King recorded possibly his best game as a Wildcat as he recorded five of the six Wildcat RBI to tie his career high. He tallied at least one RBI in three of his four plate appearances and hit his sixth double and team-best fifth home run of the year against Sun Devil pitching.

Morris threw a career-best 8.1 innings and was bidding for a complete game before he allowed a pair of one-out base runners in the ninth. Morris gave way to Thomas Rooke for the second out of the inning, while James Allen recorded his second save of the season when he forced a pop fly for the final tally.

Centenary College 8 #24 Arkansas 3

SHREVEPORT — Centenary sophomore Boone Whiting had little problems with No. 18 Arkansas on Tuesday night, as he struck nine Razorbacks in the Gents 8-3 victory at Shehee Stadium.

Four of Centenary’s hitters collected two hits, while junior Travis Leverson knocked in a pair of runs. One of Leverson’s RBIs came in the bottom of the first on an infield single to second, which was the first run of the game.

The Gents scored four runs in the first three innings and seemed to be cruising along until Arkansas brought the game within one in the sixth. All of the Razorbacks tallies came off of the bat of Ben Tschepikow, who blasted a two-run homer in the sixth, while singling one in during the fourth.
