Arkansas falls to Florida State in College World Series

Dave Van Horn & Isaiah Campbell react after Arkansas falls in 1st game of College World Series

OMAHA, Neb. (KAIT) - Two players were the story Saturday night as Arkansas and Florida State had a pitchers duel in the College World Series.

Isaiah Campbell struck out 10 in 7 shutout innings but J.C. Flowers won it for the Seminoles with his feet & glove. Flowers was hit by a pitch, broke up a double play, then scored on a sacrifice fly in the 9th inning. He notched the save in the bottom half in a 1-0 FSU victory.

The Razorback offense mustered just 5 hits on the evening, 2 of them from Christian Franklin. He had a leadoff double in the 8th inning and reached 3rd, but Arkansas couldn’t bring him home. The Diamond Hogs left 6 runners on base. Drew Parrish held them at bay with 8 shutout innings and 9 strikeouts.

Campbell had one of his best starts of his Razorback career but it came in a no decision. Along with the double digit strikeouts, he allowed 5 hits.

Arkansas now faces an elimination against fellow national seed Texas Tech. The Razorbacks and Red Raiders will play Monday afternoon at 1:00pm on ESPN.
