Arkansas sweeps Stony Brook 15-7

Arkansas past Kent State

FAYETTEVILLE — The No. 12 Arkansas Razorbacks beat Stony Brook 15-7 Saturday at Baum-Walker Stadium to earn their second series sweep of the season.

Junior Jack Kenley blasted two home runs for the Hogs to earn his first multi-home run game of his career. Kenley also became the first Diamond Hog of the season to have a multi-homer game in 2019. Kenley finished going 2-of-4 with a career-high five RBI and three runs scored.

Trevor Ezell and Christian Franklin also hit home runs, their second of the season respectively.

“I thought the team responded pretty good today,” said coach Dave Van Horn. “I was a little concerned after yesterday. We’d already won the series along with the weather and the temperature. I knew Stony Brook would come out and give us a good big game. It was a big game for them. They wanted to get out of here with a win. They jumped on us for a couple of runs in the first inning, but we came out and did a great job scoring. We ended up scoring four, but we just needed to cut that lead in half. We changed the momentum a little bit and we ended up getting the lead. They battled pretty good.”

Arkansas starting pitcher Connor threw for three innings and surrendered three runs on six hits.

The Razorbacks return to Baum-Walker on Tuesday and Wednesday with a midweek series with Charlotte. Both games will have a 3:00 p.m. first pitch.
