West Memphis alum Curtis Washington Jr. shines in opening weekend for Diamond Hogs

FAYETTEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - Arkansas is off to a 3-0 start. You can find the Razorbacks in too many national polls to count, they’re as high as #13 in the Perfect Game Top 25.

You know that Heston Kjerstad’s walkoff capped a weekend sweep. But did you know that the runner that scored off that single is a West Memphis Blue Devil?

Freshman Curtis Washington Jr. led off the 9th inning with his first hit as a Razorback. He also recorded a walk in the 3-2 Sunday victory over Eastern Illinois.
