Arkansas has 5-run 8th in 7-5 win over Oklahoma State

Associated Press

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Rick Nomura and Michael Bernal had RBI singles in a five-run eighth inning and Arkansas took advantage of Oklahoma State's sloppy defense to beat the top-seeded Cowboys 7-5 on Saturday in the winners' bracket of the Stillwater Regional.

Second-seeded Arkansas (37-22) needs one more win to advance to a Super Regional for the fourth time in seven years. Oklahoma State (38-19) needs to win three games in two days to win the regional, starting with an elimination game Sunday against St. John's.

The Razorbacks trailed 4-2 entering the eighth against Oklahoma State starter Michael Freeman, who had retired 13 straight batters. But pinch-hitter Carson Shaddy walked to end that streak and Freeman (10-3) and reliever Remey Reed both committed a key throwing error during the inning.

Arkansas reliever James Teague (5-4) picked up the win while Zach Jackson recorded his seventh save.
