Pregame Notes

Arkansas is the designated road team against TCU, meaning it will bat first.

B-2nd: TCU 1, Arkansas 0

Lael Lockhart was a strike away from a perfect second inning, but hit Zach Humphreys with a pitch and then gave up a single to Brayden Taylor, on which Humphreys went to third. Then 9-hole hitter Luke Boyers hit a blooper that was just out of the reach of Robert Moore for an RBI single.

T-8th: Arkansas 2, TCU 1

It's been a tough weekend for Christian Franklin at the plate, but he delivers an RBI triple to score Jalen Battles - who reached on a leadoff bloop single - and tie the game. That led to TCU bringing in preseason All-American reliever Haylen Green, but Cullen Smith promptly hit an RBI single off him to give Arkansas the lead.

T-9th: Arkansas 4, TCU 1

The Razorbacks get an insurance run on an RBI double by Casey Opitz. That drove in Brady Slavens, who led off the inning with a hit by pitch.

After a walk by Cayden Wallace, Zack Gregory laid down a perfect sac bunt to move the runners to second and third. A wild pitch allowed Opitz to score.
