Arkansas 6 Washington State 4
FAYETTEVILLE – Collin Kuhn had three hits and Jordan Pratt collected a two-inning save as the No. 15 University of Arkansas baseball team defeated Washington State, 6-4, Saturday night at Baum Stadium in game four of the NCAA Fayetteville Regional. The Razorbacks built a three-run lead but Washington State pulled to within one in the eighth inning before Pratt closed the door in front of 9,016 fans to keep Arkansas undefeated in regional play.
"It was a great game," head coach Dave Van Horn said. "It looked like it was going to be a pitchers’ duel for the first few innings. Both pitchers were lighting it up. We got a couple of hits and did a good job of battling in there. Their second baseman made about every play you could make. He saved them three runs with his glove and then got two for them with his home run. Every time it seemed like we were going to put them away, he made a play. We were fortunate that Jordan came in and closed it out."
