The Arkansas baseball team’s offense got off to a hot start Sunday night, but the Hogs’ bats went cold after the first inning, and the Razorbacks were eliminated from the NCAA tournament after a 4-3 loss to Kansas State.
Arkansas jumped out to an early lead against the Wildcats on the strength of a three-run first inning, but the Wildcats battled back with a two-run fourth to cut the Arkansas lead to one.
Razorback reliever Michael Gunn walked the first two batters in the 7th inning, and both runners scored on wild pitches by Hog left-hander Jalen Beeks to give the Wildcats the lead.
Wildcat closer Jake Matthys shut down the Hogs in the 8th and 9th, and the Razorbacks were eliminated from the NCAA tournament with the loss.
The Razorbacks end their season with a 39-22 record.
