HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Arkansas scored the go-ahead run on a squeeze bunt by Tyler Spoon in the eighth inning and tacked on two more insurance runs in the ninth to beat LSU 4-1 at the Southeastern Conference tournament on Thursday.

Arkansas right-hander Ryne Stanek (9-2) earned the win, giving up just one unearned run on six hits over eight innings. LSU's Aaron Nola was nearly as good, giving up one run in seven innings.

Colby Suggs threw a scoreless ninth inning for his 12th save of the season.

Arkansas (37-19) outhit LSU (49-9) 12-6. The Razorbacks were led by Matt Vinson and Spoon, who each had three hits.

LSU reliever Joey Bourgeois (3-2) took the loss. The Tigers didn't have any extra-base hits off the Razorbacks' pitching staff, which came into the game with the lowest ERA in the country.
