Hogs Earn Doubleheader Split

Jalen Beeks had it all working Saturday in the series opener at Mississippi State.

The junior from Prairie Grove scattered nine hits over scoreless innings as he led Arkansas to a 4-0 win in Starkville, Miss.

The Bulldogs bounced back for a 5-1 win in the nightcap.

Beeks (4-2) walked just one while striking out another for Arkansas. Joe Serrano led the Razorbacks’ offense with three hits while Brian Anderson, Eric Fisher and Bobby Wernes each had an RBI.

Mississippi State was held scoreless for the first 14 innings of the day but plated four runs in the sixth inning as they ran away with game two.

The Bulldogs turned five hits into four runs in the 6th inning to take control. The inning ended a stretch of 54 innings of which the Arkansas pitching staff had allowed just one run.

Arkansas jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first after a RBI single by Anderson but the Razorbacks’ bats were held quiet over the final eight frames.

The Bulldogs got two RBI from catcher Zack Randolph while Derrick Armstrong finished with three hits.

Arkansas and Mississippi State will wrap up the three game series on Sunday.
