Arkansas’ offense was the biggest question entering the 2014 season after the previous year ended in disappointing fashion.

If the first two games are any indication, the Razorbacks’ bats are loaded.

Arkansas used a three run home from Tyler Spoon and held off Appalachian State for a 7-6 win at Baum Stadium.

The two teams will wrap up the three game series Sunday (Feb. 16) at 1:05 p.m.

Brian Anderson posted his second straight three-hit game and scored a pair of runs for Arkansas while Spoon, Eric Fisher and Krisjon Wilkerson each added a pair of hits.

Appalachian State got two hits and two RBI from Dillon Dobson.

Chris Oliver picked up the win for the Razorbacks after throw five innings and allowed just one earned run on one hit. Michael Gunn earned the save as he threw the final 2 1/3 innings while striking out two.
