MOBILE, ALA. (KFSM) – The Arkansas offense looked to be rolling as they held a 6-1 lead in the weekend finale against Maryland but the Terrapins responded emphatically.

No. 19 Maryland plated nine runs in the sixth inning, with the help of seven hits and four Arkansas errors, and posted a 13-6 win at Stankey Field.

Arkansas (4-2) got a two-run home run from Brett McAfee and a three-run home run from Tyler Spoon to help build the five run lead but Maryland’s offense erupted in the middle innings.

LaMonte Wade had the big blow of the inning as he drove in a pair of runs with a single. Wade finished the day going 2-of-3 with three RBI. Kevin Smith also drove in two runs while picking up three hits for the Terrapins (5-1).

The Razorbacks pounded out 10 hits for the sixth straight game but five errors was too much to overcome.

Jacob Stone received the loss for Arkansas as he lasted just 2/3 of an inning while allowing six runs on six hits but just two of those runs were earned.
