FAYETTEVILLE – The Arkansas baseball team (11-7) completed its mid-week sweep of Grambling State (3-17) and earned its third victory in a row with an 8-0 win on Wednesday in Baum Stadium.

The victory was Arkansas’ second shutout of the season and completed the team’s third sweep of 2014. The Razorbacks once again jumped out to an early lead, scoring two in the first and three in the third. Arkansas added three more in the sixth to complete the scoring.

Junior Eric Fisher led Arkansas’ offensive attack with a career-high four hits, including two doubles, one RBI and one walk to reach base in all five of his plate appearances. Brian Anderson, Tyler Spoon and Jake Wise each had two RBI, and Clark Eagan, Anderson and Spoon scored two runs each. All nine of Arkansas’ batters reached base, with seven Razorback hitters reaching base multiple times and six recording at least one hit.

True freshman Alex Phillips (1-0) earned his first collegiate victory in his third start, pitching 3.0 shutout innings and allowing just two hits. Junior Jackson Lowery relieved Phillips and added 3.0 more shutout innings with three strikeouts. True freshman Dominic Taccolini and sophomore Landon Simpson combined for three strikeouts over the final 3.0 innings to complete the shutout.

The Razorbacks continue their home stand this weekend when Alabama comes to Fayetteville for Baum Stadium’s first SEC series of the year. Arkansas plays the Crimson Tide at 6:35 p.m. Friday, 2:05 p.m. Saturday and 1:05 p.m. Sunday.

Coach Van Horn Quotes

Head Coach Dave Van Horn (on 1B-Eric Fisher’s 4-for-4 day) – “He got four hits and more than anything, it was good for his confidence. The two best swings he took were the line drives he hit the other way. That is what we need to see him do.”

Head Coach Dave Van Horn (on playing Alabama this weekend) – “They are a really good team obviously. They field the ball really well. They have the two middle infielders that have played ball together since they were 12 years old. They have two really experienced pitchers and the pitcher they use on Sundays was their closer last year as a freshman. They are good, and we will see how it goes. It is good to be back here at Baum Stadium.”

Game Notes
• Eric Fisher recorded a single-game career-high four hits with his 4-for-4 effort at the plate. His hit total also tied Arkansas’ individual game high as he joined Joe Serrano, who had four hits Feb. 28 vs. South Alabama.

• Brian Anderson hit his sixth career triple in the third inning with a ball that hit high off the wall in right-center field.

• Clark Eagan scored a career-high two runs, crossing the plate in the third and sixth innings.

• Alex Phillips did not allow a run for his second consecutive appearance. In his last appearance, he pitched 2.0 shutout innings as the starter in an 8-3 win vs. Eastern Illinois on Feb. 23.

• The Razorbacks were hit by five pitches during the game and have been hit by 38 pitches this season with at least one hit by pitch in 15 of 18 games, including four straight, and multiple hit by pitches in 10 games. Arkansas was pegged nine times in the series and has surpassed last year’s season total of 36 hit by pitches accrued over 61 games.

• Arkansas’ eight runs tied for the team’s fourth-highest scoring output this season and marked the second time in three games the Razorbacks scored at least eight runs.

• The Razorbacks batted around for the second straight game and third time this season, sending nine batters to the plate in the sixth.
