Auburn starter Hayden Gliemmo (7-1) allowed three runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings while striking out two and walking two to earn his third-consecutive victory. Cory Dueitt scattered four hits and gave up one run in 3 1/3 innings of relief to earn his first save of the year.

Arkansas starter Jeremy Rankin (2-3) yielded five runs on five hits in three innings and was charged with the loss.
