Wicklander tames Tigers in series opener

Arkansas knocks off LSU backed by strong outing from Wicklander

BATON ROUGE, La. — On Friday night #1 Arkansas knocked off LSU, 7-0 in the series opener. Patrick Wicklander put the Tigers offense to rest early and often.

The Arkansas offense would fall silent until the seventh inning. Matt Goodheart opened the inning with the team's first hit of the night.

Later in the frame Christian Franklin would break the ice with a two RBI single. 

Wicklander continued his dominance on the mound throwing six plus shutout innings. 

Brady Slavens would add two insurance runs with a bases loaded hit in the top of the eighth. Franklin would then add a three run home run. He had five RBI's on the night. 

Arkansas and LSU will play a doubleheader on Saturday with the first game beginning at 2 p.m.
