Arkansas gets seventh shutout of season for series win against No. 2 South Carolina

  Chris Oliver had a career-high 10 strikeouts against South Carolina.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas (20-12, 6-6 SEC) picked up its second straight win against the No. 2 team in the country on Saturday, blanking South Carolina (26-5, 7-5) 7-0 in SEC action.

Junior Chris Oliver (3-3) put together his best performance as a Razorback, lasting 8.0 innings and giving up just four hits and no runs. He tallied a career-high 10 strikeouts and became the first Arkansas pitcher since Ryne Stanek in 2012 against No. 15 LSU to record double-digit strikeouts in a contest.

The offense backed Oliver from the opening pitch, scoring five runs in the second inning to jump out to its biggest lead of the series. Brian Anderson led the way with his third three-hit game of the year and his team-leading 10th multi-hit contest of the season. Joe Serrano provided the big hit the second inning with a bases loaded single down the right field line to send all three runners racing home.

Arkansas added two more insurance runs later in the game, as Jake Wise converted a squeeze bunt in the fifth and Eric Fisher singled home a run in the sixth to give the Razorbacks all the runs they would need in a 7-0 victory.

Zach Jackson came on in the ninth and kept the Gamecocks off the board to give Arkansas its seventh shutout of the season and hand Oliver his third win of the year.
