Diamond Hogs complete sweep of Mississippi State

Arkansas wins again in Starkville, 6-4

STARKVILLE, Miss — Forget cowbells, time to break out the brooms in Starkville, as #2 Arkansas completes the sweep of Mississippi State with a 6-4 win on Sunday.

Matt Goodheart homered in his fourth straight game to get the scoring started for the Razorbacks in the fourth. Arkansas batted around in the inning, scoring five runs. 

Sunday starter Lael Lockhart was smooth until the bottom of the fourth, when he gave up two runs and left with just one out. Ryan Costeiu entered and got the Hogs out of the jam, then lasted into the sixth, where he gave up two solo homers. Monke, Morris, and Wiggins combined for four scoreless frames to finish out the game, with Wiggins picking up his fourth save of the season.

The sweep moves Arkansas to 5-1 in SEC play and 19-3 overall. The Hogs host UCA Tuesday at 6:30pm, then Auburn comes to town for three games starting Thursday.
