FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Sophomore Carson Shaddy had a perfect night at the plate Tuesday, going 3-for-3 with six RBI, two doubles and two runs scored to lead No. 13 Arkansas over Grambling State, 14-4, at Baum Stadium. The six runs batted in by Shaddy is the most by a Razorback this season and most since former Hog Brett Eibner plated seven in an NCAA Regional game against the same Grambling State team back in May of the 2010 season.

All nine of Arkansas’ (14-3) starters in the batting lineup reached base in some form during the game as the Hogs tallied 15 hits, tying for their second-highest total this season. Along with Shaddy, four other players had a multi-hit game on Tuesday. Clark Eagan and Rick Nomura each had three hits apiece, while Luke Bonfield and Michael Bernal added two.

Isaiah Campbell (2-0) picked up the win in his second start of the season, going four innings and giving up three earned runs on four hits with one walk and four strikeouts. Campbell was followed by Hunter Hart, Ty Harris, James Teague and Jake Reindl as the bullpen only allowed four hits the rest of the way with one run scored.

Arkansas and Grambling State are back on the field Wednesday to finish the two-game series with first pitch at 3 p.m. at Baum Stadium. The game will be broadcast on SEC Network
