FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Brandon Moore and Trent Daniel each turned in quality performances out of the Razorback bullpen. Moore allowed a hit in 3.2 shutout innings, while Daniel struck out two of the three batters he faced in his perfect inning of work.
Neither starter factored into the decision on Sunday. Arkansas starter Randall Fant gave up three runs on three hits and struck out one in 2.2 innings. LSU starter Cody Glenn allowed three runs on five hits in 3.1 innings.
Freshman Jordan Farris led the Razorbacks at the plate with a two-hit performance, including a home run, and two RBI. Tyler Spoon had a hit and a RBI in the loss. Brian Anderson, Dominic Ficociello, McAfee and Joe Serrano also had one hit.
Alex Bregman homered and had a game-high three hits with two RBI to lead LSU at the plate. Mark Laird, McMullen and Rhymes each had a hit and a RBI.
Arkansas jumped out to an early lead with a run in the home half of the first. Jacob Mahan drew a leadoff walk and then advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Serrano. Spoon came through with the one-out RBI single to left field to score Mahan from second base.
The Tigers grabbed the lead with three runs in the top of the third. Laird drove in a run on a RBI fielder’s choice and a two-run home run from Bregman later in the inning gave LSU a 3-1 edge.
Arkansas answered with a run in the bottom of the third on Farris’ leadoff homer as he sent a 2-1 pitch over the wall in left-center field for his second round-tripper of the season.
The Razorbacks tied the game with a run in the bottom of the fourth. With two out and runners on first and second, Farris again provided the key hit with an opposite field RBI single to right, scoring Ficociello from second base to tie the game at three.
The run in the fourth was the last run either team would score until LSU broke the 3-3 deadlock with two runs in the 10th.
Arkansas is back in action on Tuesday as it opens a two-game series at Nebraska. First pitch on Tuesday is set for 6:35 p.m. and the game will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
