Just before 3 a.m., sophomore Jared Gates provided the exclamation point in the eighth inning with his two-run home run that sent the remaining Arkansas fans to its loudest decibel of the night. Arkansas had taken the lead earlier in the inning on an RBI groundout by Jax Biggers and then a wild pitch that scored Dominic Fletcher.
Arkansas will face two-seed Missouri State for the third time this weekend in a regional-deciding game on Monday at Baum Stadium. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN3.
