Omahogs With the Sweep

By Aidan Beversdorf

On Sunday, June 12th, Arkansas found themselves trailing by a single run in the bottom of the ninth to North Carolina. The Tar Heels were trying to force a winner take- all game three the next day. However for Arkansas, they were trying to etch their name into college baseball history with a trip to Omaha. Outfielder Brayden Webb grounded to short stop allowing base runner Jalen Battles to score and tie the game at three runs apiece. That fielder’s choice set up runners on the corners with one out. Then Brady Slavens stepped to the plate. He knew he needed get the ball in play, and that’s exactly what he did. Slavens ripped a single into right sending Peyton Stovall home to score the winning run and punch the Hogs ticket to Omaha.
