BASEBALL: No. 1 Arkansas takes pair from New Orleans


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — At the plate, Dan Perkins managed the only hit of the game for the Privateers.

Arkansas wasted little time jumping on Martinez, putting together a five-run first inning. Vinson led off the inning with a single to left field. With one out, Spoon launched an opposite field home run over the wall in right field to put the Razorbacks in front 2-0. Eric Fisher followed with a single and back-to-back walks to Anderson and Schwanke loaded the bases with one out. Mahan drove in the third run of the inning on a groundout. A wild pitch scored Anderson and a two-out single by Brett McAfee plated Schwanke to close the scoring in the inning.

The Razorbacks continued the onslaught in the bottom of the second. Joe Serrano started the inning with a single and then took second on a wild pitch. Spoon drove in his third run of the game with a line drive single to center field, scoring Serrano. A one-out single by Anderson advanced Spoon to second. After a fly out by Schwanke, Mahan lined a single up the middle to score Spoon. A walk to Wise loaded the bases and a walk to McAfee scored Wise from third.

Arkansas added two more runs in the home half of the third. Serrano reached on a fielding error by the UNO third baseman to begin the inning. With one out, Fisher hit a ground ball to the shortstop, who tried to start a double play, but his throw to second was high and went down the right field line, allowing Fisher to reach and advancing Serrano to third. Anderson was hit by a pitch to load the bases for Schwanke, who drew a walk to score Serrano. Mahan brought home fisher with a RBI single through the right side of the infield to give Arkansas a 10-run lead.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
