Diamond Hogs advance to regional final with win over Bryant



MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Brett McAfee had two doubles and drove in three runs as Arkansas defeated Bryant 12-3 on Sunday in an NCAA regional game.

McAfee led a Razorbacks (39-21) offense that put together its best showing of the tournament, piling up 13 hits against a Bryant pitching staff that had been mostly stingy during the weekend. Jacob Mahan had three RBIs, and Tyler Spoon drove in two.

The Razorbacks jumped on Bryant (45-18-1) with three runs in the first, four in the third and another five in the eighth inning.

The Bulldogs, who were eliminated, got a solo homer from Kevin Brown in the first inning and an RBI single from Dan Muscatello in the sixth.

Arkansas' Randall Fant (6-1) earned the win, allowing two runs and six hits in 5 2-3 innings. Kevin McAvoy (7-3) took the loss.
