Razorbacks Dominate College World Series Opener

Posted: Updated:

DJ Baxendale and Brandon Moore combined on a four-hitter, Jake Wise homered for the first time since February and Arkansas defeated Kent State 8-1 on Saturday to spoil the Golden Flashes' first appearance in the College World Series.

Baxendale didn't allow a hit until Sawyer Polen's infield single with two out in the fifth. He held the Flashes (46-19) scoreless until Jimmy Rider homered in the sixth.

Arkansas (45-20) broke open the game on Matt Vinson's two-run double that made it 5-1 in the bottom of the sixth.

Baxendale (8-5) allowed just three hits, giving way to Moore with one out in the seventh. He struck out five and walked one.

Kent State starter David Starn (11-4) walked three of the first four batters he faced and left after Vinson's two-out double.
