Brady Slavens hit a walkoff RBI single in the bottom of the 9th, Arkansas rallied to beat North Carolina 4-3 in Game 2 of the Chapel Hill Super Regional. The Razorbacks sweep the Tar Heels in the best-of-three series.

Sunday’s matchup featured two separate weather delays, the proceedings were delayed nearly three hours. Arkansas took an early 2-0 lead after a Jalen Battles RBI double in the 4th and a Braydon Webb solo homer in the 5th.

North Carolina tied the game in the 7th, Patrick Alvarez gave the Tar Heels the lead in the 9th with an RBI single. But a Razorback rally sends them to Omaha for the 7th time under Dave Van Horn.
