Arkansas takes Game 1 of Super Regional with blowout win over NC State


The Arkansas Razorbacks are one win from being OmaHogs again. Dave Van Horn’s squad is up 1-0 in the best-of-three Fayetteville Super Regional after Arkansas topped NC State 21-2.

NC State struck first when Jose Torres hit a solo homer to left field in the top of the second. Arkansas answered in the bottom half of the frame when Robert “Big Hit Bob” Moore hit a two-run homer to right field. The Razorbacks added another run in the inning with a Battles double to left field, plating Opitz.

Cullen Smith busted the game open with a grand slam in the bottom of the third, making it 7-1 Hogs.
