The Razorbacks answer right back with a run scoring single from Ben McLaughlin and a run scoring single from Peyton Holt.

Then in the second inning, the Razorbacks get two solo home runs from Jared Sprague-Lott and Hudson White to give Arkansas a 4-3 lead. Sprague-Lott was able to knock in two more runs for the Razorbacks with a single in the third.
