With three runs in the first and two in the second, the Arkansas pitching and defense took over the remainder of the way, holding Texas Tech to no hits and only walked one over the final six innings. It’s the 33rd game this year that Arkansas has walked four or less batters as a staff and 10th game they’ve held opponents to one run or less.
The win is also the sixth-straight midweek win for Arkansas and 24th win at home. The Hogs have been quite comfortable when playing at home as the pitching staff has racked up a 2.52 ERA, while the offense is hitting a combined .334 inside the friendly confines.
