NCAA Baseball: Hogs Clinch Series against Texas A&M

Fayetteville, Ark. – The No. 12 Arkansas Razorbacks (21-15, 11-7) clinched their fourth SEC series in the 2013 NCAA baseball season beating Texas A&M 2-1 on Sunday. The Hogs entered the series with a Division-I best ERA of 1.77 and did little to disappoint against the Aggies over the weekend.

A&M (22-19, 7-11) faced a red-hot Randall Fant (3-1) on Sunday. Fant, keeping inline with the pitching mantra of Razorback head coach Dave Van Horn, stuck out a career-high eight batters over six innings allowing one run on two hits. Colby Suggs earned his fifth save of the season retiring the side against the Aggies in the ninth inning.

Brian Anderson drove in both Razorback runs with a two-out RBI in the first and a bases loaded sacrifice fly in the third.

Troy Stein hit a solo shot for the Aggies scoring their only run, his third homer of the season.

The Hogs bats stayed hot in the series finale cranking out 11 hits after collecting 15 on Saturday and five on Friday.

Brian Anderson had a great weekend series going 3 for 4 with one run scored on Friday, 1 for 2 on Saturday with two runs scored with one RBI, and his 1 for 3 performance with two runs driven in on Sunday (5-9, .555 average).

The Razorbacks host a mid-week series on Tuesday against No. 13 Oklahoma before traveling to Athens to take on the Georgia Bulldogs.
