SEC BASEBALL: Stanek pitches Hogs to series clinching win over South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. — Arkansas junior right-handed pitcher Ryne Stanek tossed the second complete game of his collegiate career, allowing two unearned runs and striking out seven, as the 17th-ranked Razorbacks defeated No. 6 South Carolina, 4-2, on Saturday afternoon at Carolina Stadium.

The win clinches the series for the Razorbacks. It’s Arkansas’ first series victory at South Carolina since taking two of three in 2009. Arkansas is now 16-7 on the season, 3-2 in Southeastern Conference play, while South Carolina falls to 18-5, 2-3 in league play.

Stanek turned in the best start of his junior season against the Gamecocks, tossing the second complete game of his Arkansas career. Stanek also went the distance on June 5, 2011, in the Razorbacks’ 11-3 win over Charlotte in the NCAA Tempe Regional.

In this contest, Stanek gave up two unearned runs on three hits to earn his second win of the season. Only one of South Carolina’s three hits left the infield with the other two being infield singles. Stanek struck out a season-high seven batters and issued just one walk. The junior right hander got stronger as the game progressed, retiring 14 of the final 16 batters he faced, including the final six men South Carolina sent to the plate.

South Carolina starter Nolan Belcher (4-2) took the loss. Belcher gave up four runs, two earned, on nine hits and struck out six in 7.1 innings.

Arkansas recorded 10 hits in the victory, the fourth-consecutive game of 10 or more hits for the Razorbacks. Brian Anderson, Dominic Ficociello and Jacob Mahan had two hits to lead the Razorbacks. Jacob Morris, Matt Vinson and Tyler Spoon each had a hit and a RBI in the victory. Vinson’s hit and RBI came on his first home run of the season.

Connor Bright, Shon Carson and Tanner English each had one hit for the Gamecocks. George Iskenderian and Chase Vergason each had a RBI in the loss.

  • DSC_0114web.jpg SOCCER: JV Lady Zebras edge Verdigris, 2-1

    Claremore sophomore forward Brylee Brasher may have felt a little out of position Monday night during the junior varsity game against Verdigris.
    Normally, starting in the goal for the Lady Zebras varsity team, Brasher came out of her comfort zone to start at forward for the Claremore JV.
    The position switch proved to be a great decision for head coach Robin Sutherland, as Brasher showed a tenacity on offense that led to Claremore’s 2-1 win over Verdigris.
