BASEBALL: No. 1 Arkansas takes pair from New Orleans

(Continued)

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Razorbacks added two runs in both the fifth and sixth innings. In the fifth, Mahan drove in a run on a RBI groundout and McAfee doubled to left center to score Schwanke. In the sixth, Schwanke launched a two-run homer over the bullpen in right field for the first home run of his collegiate career to close the scoring.

Game 2 Recap

Four Arkansas pitchers combined on a four-hit shutout as the Razorbacks completed a doubleheader sweep of New Orleans with a 3-0 victory.

Landon Simpson started on the mound for his first collegiate appearance and earned the victory, tossing three scoreless innings and allowing three hits. Colby Suggs, Michael Gunn and Jalen Beeks came in in relief of Simpson and preserved the shutout. Suggs tossed a hitless inning, while Gunn was sensational, striking out six and allowing just one hit in four innings. Beeks earned the first save of his Razorback career with a perfect ninth inning.

New Orleans starter Blake Prest took his first loss of the season after giving up a run on five hits and striking out one in five innings.

Matt Vinson had two hits to lead the Razorback offense in the game. Jake Wise drove in two runs and had a hit, while Gunn and Jacob Morris each had a hit and a run scored.

Arkansas got on the scoreboard first with a run in the bottom of the second. With one out, Gunn doubled to the gap in left center and came around to score on a two-out single up the middle by Wise.

The Razorbacks added another run in the bottom of the sixth. Brian Anderson walked to begin the inning and advanced to second on a ground out by Gunn. After Jordan Farris walked, each runner moved up a base on a wild pitch. Wise drove home Anderson with a RBI ground out to short to give Arkansas a 2-0 lead.
