Cougs Leave Bags Full and Fall Short

Posted: Updated:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Jordan Pratt helped Arkansas escape a
bases-loaded jam with no outs in the eighth inning, and the
Razorbacks held on for a 6-4 win over Washington State on Saturday
night in the Fayetteville Regional.


      Washington State (35-21) will play Kansas State on Sunday, with
the winner of that game facing Arkansas and needing to beat the
Hogs (42-18) twice to win the regional.


      Pratt came in with the bases full and nobody out and the
Razorbacks up 5-4. He retired Matt Fanelli on a popout, Michael
Weber on a strikeout and Shea Vucinich on a flyout to preserve the
lead.


      Arkansas' Collin Kuhn led off the top of the ninth with a homer,
and Pratt pitched the bottom half for his second save of the
season.
