Arkansas downs No. 2 LSU 5-1

Arkansas 3-19 The Razorbacks' win was their first in SEC play (1-3) this season.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas came out swinging early Thursday evening, scoring five runs in the first four innings before picking up a 5-1 victory against No. 2 LSU in Game 1 of a three-game series at Baum Stadium.

Arkansas did all its damage in the early going, scoring a run in each of the first two innings before breaking the game wide open with three runs in the fourth frame to take a commanding 5-0 lead.

The big fourth inning featured five hits in the frame, including clutch two-out base knocks from Rick Nomura and Andrew Benintendi to fuel the three-run spurt.

LSU threatened in the fifth inning, loading the bases with just one out, but Dominic Taccolini forced Danny Zardon to ground into a 5-4-3 double play to end the threat and keep the Tigers off the board.

LSU’s lone run of the game came in the sixth inning when Alex Bregman connected on a solo home run, but that would be all the Arkansas pitchers would allow, clamping down in the final three innings to seal the victory.

Dominic Taccolini (4-2) earned the win and posted his fourth quality start of the year, lasting 6.0 innings and giving up one run on six hits, while walking one and striking out two.

He gave way to Zach Jackson who threw 3.0 scoreless frames, allowing just one hit and striking out four batters to earn his first save of the year.

Clark Eagan paced the offense with three hits and two runs scored at the top of the order, while Benintendi and Joe Serrano added two hits apiece.
