The Hogs had just  three hits in the game but Brian Anderson made them count. He had two of the hits, along with a RBI. Jake Wise had the other hit for the Razorbacks and also drove in a run.

The Razorbacks struck first with a run in the top of the third when Anderson roped a single to left field, scoring Jacob Morris.

Arkansas added an insurance run in the top of the eighth. With the bases loaded and two out, Wise was hit by a pitch, scoring Matt Vinson.

Arkansas and Georgia continue the three-game series on Saturday with first pitch scheduled for 11 a.m.
