KANSAS CITY, Mo. – A wild pitch in the bottom of the 10th inning scoring Carson Shaddy gave the 14th-ranked Razorback baseball team the 6-5 win over Kansas State Tuesday night in Kauffman Stadium. The win is Arkansas’ 12th-straight midweek win and 33rd win of the year.

Arkansas is now 33-10 this year with the win and Kansas State falls to 21-20.

Both teams were not able to push a run across in the eighth and ninth innings after the Hogs tied the game in the seventh on a Luke Bonfield sacrifice fly. As the game went into extras, heavy rain started to fall and there were questions if the game would be able to complete.

Freshman pitcher Jacob Kostyshock worked through a whirlwind of a 10th inning when he loaded the bases with two outs, but was able to strike out Cameron Thompson and keep the game tied at 5-5. Kansas State left 13 runners on base in the game as opposed to Arkansas’ nine.

In the bottom of the 10th, with the rain continuing to fall, Shaddy led off the inning with a single and then was advanced over on a groundout. Two batters later, Jax Biggers grounded out to moved Shaddy to third. With Evan Lee at the plate, Kansas State pitcher Tyler Eckberg threw a wild pitch, allowing Shaddy to score the winning run.

Shaddy finished the game 2-for-4 at the plate with two runs scored and a walk. Dominic Fletcher also had a two-hit game with two runs scored and a walk.

Kostyshock earned his first collegiate victory after the scoreless 10th inning. Arkansas used nine pitchers in the game, its most this year.
