Arkansas (18-5, 4-2 SEC) trailed by four after the Crimson Tide's first time at the plate, but used a two-run bottom of the first to cut into its deficit before posting four runs in the sixth and seventh innings to take control of Sunday's game. The Hogs will take a five-game winning streak into their midweek series against Centenary.
Following the pattern of the first two games of the series, Alabama (16-6, 2-4) jumped out to the early lead with a four-run first inning. With two runners on and no outs, Ross Wilson hit a three-run homer to left field, his fifth long ball of the season. Chris Smelley drove in the Crimson Tide's final run of the inning with a sacrifice fly to give the visitors a 4-0 advantage.
After recording the first out in the sixth, Alabama reliever Adam Scott ran into trouble, giving up three home runs in the inning to surrender the lead to Arkansas. Kuhn started the fireworks with a one-out solo shot to center field, his fourth of the season. Two hitters later, Cox belted the first pitch he saw from Scott for another solo home run to tie the score. Cox extended his hitting streak to 23 games earlier with a single in the second inning. Wilkins capped the long-ball barrage with a two-run home run to left field and the Razorbacks led, 6-4.
The home run was the 36th career dinger for Wilkins, which moves him into sole possession of fifth place on Arkansas' all-time list. It also represented the 125th RBI of his Razorback career.
Arkansas turned six double plays during its series against the Crimson Tide, including a season-high three in Saturday's come-from-behind win. The Hogs have turned 19 double plays this season.
