Arkansas hands Texas A&M first series loss

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Arkansas (24-17, 9-9) scored six first-inning runs Sunday afternoon and dealt top-ranked Texas A&M (35-5, 12-5) its first series loss of the year with an 8-2 victory at Blue Bell Park.

Arkansas hands the top-ranked Aggies back-to-back losses for the first time this season as the Razorbacks capture their fourth consecutive SEC series win.

The Razorbacks took the lead just two batter into the game as Clark Eagan reached and Joe Serrano drilled an RBI double to the gap in right center to give Arkansas an early lead. The game was immediately halted due to storms in the area and the two teams waited out a two hour and six minute rain delay.

After the rain passed, the floodgates opened for the Arkansas offense as the Razorbacks plated six runs in the opening inning, including a pair of runs batted in from Luke Bonfield and Brett McAfee to create the 6-0 lead.

Keaton McKinney (3-1) took the mound with a lead and did not disappoint, lasting 5.1 innings and giving up two runs on seven hits, while striking out three.

Tyler Spoon would provide the rest of the offense with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning, before an RBI single in the sixth inning gave Arkansas all the runs they would need in a six-run victory.

Zach Jackson came on in the sixth inning with the bases loaded and did what he has all year as he forced a pop out to third base and a strikeout to strand three Aggies. He would slam in the door in the seventh inning to seal the victory and give Arkansas its third win of the year against the No. 1 team in the land.
