#2 Diamond Hogs Cruise Past Gators in Series Opener


No. 2 Arkansas rode a seven shut out inning, seven strike out performance by Conner Nolan to a 8-1 opening series victory over Florida last night in Gainesville.

Arkansas would strike first in the third inning on a Michael Turner single that scored Cayden Wallace. The Hogs would waist no time striking again in the fourth inning with an RBI single by Wallace. Chris Lanzilli blasted a solo homerun in the top of the sixth, before the Hogs sealed the deal scoring five runs in the ninth inning.

Noland finished the night with seven strike outs, allowing no runs, only one hit, and one base on balls in seven innings of work. Wallace finished the night going 2 for 4 with 2RBI’s, with 2 runs scored. Turner was 3 for 5 with a run scored and 2RBI’s, while Lanzilli was 2 for 4 with a run scored and 2RBI’s. Braydon Webb also homered in his third consecutive game on the way to the win.
