ARKANSAS QUICK HITS ...
► Arkansas won its first two games at the CWS for the second time and first since 1979 -- the school’s first trip to Omaha. In that first trip, the Razorbacks won their first three CWS games before losing twice to eventual champion Cal State Fullerton.

► In their 2-1 win against South Carolina on Tuesday, The Razorbacks held an opponent to one run or fewer for the fifth time in this year's NCAA tournament. Since 2005, the only team to allow a run or less in five different games in one NCAA tournament was Virginia in 2011.

► Arkansas became just the third team since 1976 to allow a run or less in each of its first two games of the CWS. The only other teams to accomplish the feat over that span are Pepperdine in 1992 (6-0 against Wichita State, 7-0 against Texas) and Texas in 2005 (5-1 against Baylor, 5-0 against Tulane).

► Arkansas closer Barrett Astin has gone 10.0 innings since he last allowed an earned run; the last earned run came on May 12 against Auburn.

SOUTH CAROLINA QUICK HITS ...
► With South Carolina’s win, an SEC team is guaranteed to be in the CWS Championship Finals for the fifth consecutive year, as Arkansas or South Carolina will win its bracket (2008: Georgia, 2009: LSU, 2010: South Carolina, 2011: Florida and South Carolina). The only other time one conference has had a team in five consecutive finals was 1970-74 when USC won five titles in a row as a member of the Pac-12 (known then as the Pac-8).

► Thursday marks the first time since 2003 that a defending champion faced elimination at the College World Series. Each year since then, the reigning champion has either not made it back to Omaha the next year or swept through the next CWS undefeated -- Oregon State in 2007 and South Carolina last year. The last team to face elimination and still end up defending its title was Stanford in 1988.

► Christian Walker’s 23 career CWS hits tie him for third on the all-time list with Keith Moreland of Texas (1973-75). Walker has 156 career putouts in the in Omaha as well, second all-time to Daryl Arenstein of Southern California (191 from 1970-73).
