SEC BASEBALL: Hogs even series with Aggies

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. —  Arkansas’ Jordan Farris went 3-for-5 with a homer and five RBI, while Ryne Stanek struck out a season-high nine and allowed one run in six innings of work as the 12th-ranked Razorbacks defeated Texas A&M 12-2 on Saturday night at Baum Stadium.

The Razorbacks improve to 26-15 overall and 10-7 in the Southeastern Conference after Saturday’s series-evening win. Texas A&M drops to 22-18 and 7-10 in league play.

The Arkansas offense put together a 15-hit performance, the most by the team in a conference game this season. Farris led the way at the plate with three hits, including his third home run of the season, and a season-high five RBI. Brett McAfee and Matt Vinson each added three hits. Vinson drove in two runs and scored twice, while McAfee had one RBI. Dominic Ficociello had two hits, including a home run, and drove in two runs, while scoring three times. Joe Serrano was 2-for-4 with two runs scored.

Stanek (5-2) earned the win for the third consecutive start, allowing a run on five hits and striking out a season-high nine batters in six innings. The junior right hander finished one strikeout shy of tying his career high of 10 strikeouts, set last season at LSU.

Michael Gunn recorded his first save of the season with three innings of work, giving up one run and striking out two.

Texas A&M starter Matt Kent (2-2) took the loss. Kent gave up four runs on six hits in two innings.

Arkansas jumped on Kent from the start, scoring three times in the bottom of the first. A one-out double by Vinson and single by Tyler Spoon put runners on first and third for Brian Anderson, who doubled to the gap in left center, scoring Vinson and moving Spoon to third. After a ground out by Ficociello to third, Farris came through with his first two RBI of the night on a single to right-center.
