Arkansas jumps out in front of Vanderbilt

FAYETTEVILLE -- Arkansas (24-15, 8-8 SEC) used a four-run first inning Friday evening to race out to an early lead and defeat No. 11 Vanderbilt (28-11, 7-9) 6-2 at Baum Stadium.

The fireworks started early for the Razorbacks, as Eric Fisher came to the plate with two on and two out in the first inning and belted his team-leading sixth home run of the year to right field. The long ball gave Fisher four home runs in the last five games and capped a four-run first inning for Arkansas.

Trey Killian took full advantage of the early lead and tossed 6.2 innings and gave up six hits and no earned runs to earn his second win of the season, while Zach Jackson and Michael Gunn slammed the door with three strikeouts in 2.1 relief innings.

Fisher added a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning to give him a career-high four runs batted in on day, while Andrew Benintendi and Joe Serrano each tallied their 13th multi-hit games of the year. Blake Baxendale recorded two more hits and drove in a pair of runs to extend his hitting streak to four games.
