Serrano capped the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. He finished with three RBI.

After going 1-for-23 to start the season, Jake Wise broke out of his slump with a 2-for-3 day at the plate.

Zack Jackson earned the win for the Razorbacks, pitching 3 2/3 innings in relief. He gave up four hits, while walking two batters and striking out two.
