BATON ROUGE, La. - The No. 24 Arkansas baseball team gave up four early runs Friday evening and never fully recovered, falling 5-3 to No. 8 LSU at Alex Box Stadium.

After giving up four runs in the first three innings, three of which were earned, Trey Killian settled in on the mound and tossed his SEC-leading third complete game of the year, allowing five hits and striking out three.  

Joe Serrano provided the first hit of the game for the Razorbacks in the fourth inning, lining a double to straight-away center, but Arkansas came up empty after back-to-back strikeouts.

Eric Fisher took matters into his hands in the fifth inning when led off with a solo home run to right center, his third long ball of the year to put the Razorbacks on the board.

Brian Anderson came up big in the eighth inning, stepping in with two runners on and lining a double to the gap in right-center to plate two runs and cut the LSU lead to 5-3. Anderson's double extended his hitting streak to 11 games.

Game two of the series between Arkansas and LSU is set for Saturday at noon and will be televised nationally on ESPN2 with Tom Hart (play-by-play) and Eduardo Perez (analyst) calling the action.
