Arkansas Baseball Sweeps South Carolina In Columbia

Logan J Webster/ArkansasRazorbacks.com

So, what are these "road victories" we compiled this weekend and how can we get more of them?

Remarkably, it's the first time South Carolina has been swept at home since 1999.

The Diamond Hogs' oft-maligned bats came alive in Columbia on Friday, reeling off nine runs in the fourth inning and added five more runs in the seventh en route to a dominant 15-3 win over South Carolina. Eight of nine position starters had at least one hit. It was the most runs Arkansas has scored in an SEC game since 2010. BEAUTIFUL!

The Saturday game was all about Ryne Stanek. The junior right-hander tossed a complete game, leading Arkansas to a 4-2 victory. Both of South Carolina's runs were unearned.

Sunday's close-out was the tightest contest. It took Arkansas 11 innings to get the 5-3 win. After dropping the series against Ole Miss in extra innings last Sunday, it's nice to see Arkansas earning the sweep in extra innings on the road this week. It's a huge win that hopefully represents the beginning of a season turnaround for a team that was rated #1 in multiple publications in the preseason and dropped to the mid-teens after disappointing performances in a road trip to Arizona and dropping the home series to the Rebels last week.

The Hogs won the Sunday finale with a 2-RBI single from Matt Vinson in the top of the 11th. Colby Suggs came in to close the game.
