Pregame Notes

Dave Van Horn has moved a couple of players back to their normal positions - Matt Goodheart to designated hitter and Cayden Wallace to right field - and inserted Zack Gregory into left field.

Nebraska is using its same lineup.

Full lineups for both teams are listed below.

T-2nd: Nebraska 1, Arkansas 0

After a perfect first inning, Jaxon Wiggins gave up a leadoff home run to Luke Roskam in the second. It was a no-doubter.

T-3rd: Nebraska 2, Arkansas 0

Wiggins walked the first two batters and Arkansas turned things over to Kevin Kopps. Joe Acker laid down a sacrifice bunt and then Jaxon Hallmark notched an RBI on a ground out.

B-5th: Nebraska 2, Arkansas 1

Casey Opitz gets the Razorbacks on the board with a leadoff home run that cleared the left field bullpen.

B-6th: Arkansas 2, Nebraska 2

Robert Moore ties the game with a two-out home run in the sixth.

B-8th: Arkansas 6, Nebraska 2

Three straight walks loaded the bases with two outs and then a wild pitch brought in the go-ahead run. Pinch-hitter Charlie Welch followed with a three-run homer.
