Stanek, Arkansas top Wichita State 3-1

 

MANHATTAN, KS (AP) - Ryne Stanek held Wichita State to one run and two hits in 7 1-3 innings as Arkansas eliminated the Shockers from the NCAA tournament with a 3-1 victory Saturday.

The Razorbacks (38-21) got on the scoreboard quickly on Tyler Spoon's two-run single in the first inning, and Stanek held Wichita State hitless for the first three innings.

The Razorbacks added a late run on an RBI single by Brett McAfee in the seventh.

Stanek's command was shaky throughout the game, walking a season-high six batters. The Shockers couldn't capitalize though, leaving five runners on base with Stanek on the mound.

Stanek (10-2) finished with three strikeouts and has allowed one or fewer runs in 13 of his 16 starts this season.

Wichita State (39-28) scored its lone run on Casey Gillaspie's homer in the fourth. AJ Ladwig (5-6) allowed two runs on nine hits in six innings.
