FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The third-ranked Razorback Baseball team used plenty of offense and got a strong start from junior Blaine Knight to cruise past Bucknell, 14-2, Friday afternoon at Baum Stadium.

Knight, who was making his second straight Opening Day start, didn’t give up a hit over five innings while walking only two and striking out four. The Bryant, Arkansas native only needed 67 pitches to make it five innings as he went three up and three down over his final three innings of work.

With Friday being Knight’s second Opening Day start in a row, it was also his third year to be part of the starting rotation on Opening Weekend. Combined over the last three years, Knight has struck out 12 batters in 14 innings, while allowing just two runs and walking two in his first starts to a season.

At the plate, freshman Heston Kjerstad led all Razorback hitters as he went 3-for-4 with a double and a single, all in his first three at-bats. His first collegiate hit also helped Arkansas score its first run of the season, singling with two outs through the right side in the first to score Jax Biggers. It was part of a four-run inning that helped kick-start the offense and was only the beginning of the big showing by the bats.

Arkansas plated 14 runs on 12 hits in the game. It was the largest run output by an Arkansas team on Opening Day since 2001 when it brought 25 runs across against Missouri Southern. The lineup also drew 15 walks in the game to frustrate the Bucknell pitching staff.

Along with Kjerstad, Eric Cole earned his first multi-hit performance of the season, going 2-for-5 with two runs scored and an RBI. Senior Carson Shaddy provided the lone big fly of the afternoon as his second inning home run brought three runs, part of a six-run frame to break the game wide open at 10-0.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The No. 3 Arkansas Baseball team brought the offense Saturday in game two against Bucknell and didn’t let up. The Hogs nearly scored a school record for runs in a game as they throttled the Bison, 32-4, at Baum Stadium, winning the series.

The program record for runs scored in a game by an Arkansas team is 33 set in 1984 against Southwest Baptist and the Hogs fell just one run short of tying the record on Saturday. With the help of 22 hits, six home runs and four innings of five or more runs, Arkansas’ starting pitcher Isaiah Campbell was able to relax through his four innings of work.

Campbell, who was making his first appearance since being shut down with an injury in the second week of the 2017 season, pitched well over four frames, allowing just three hits, one earned run and two walks. He also tallied seven strikeouts, which was a career high.

At the plate, freshman Casey Martin had a breakout day, going 4-for-6 with five RBIs and three runs scored, leading all hitters. He also hit one of Arkansas’ six home runs in the game as he blasted his first round-tripper well into the Hog Pen in left field in the sixth inning to bring three runs in. Dominic Fletcher, Grant Koch, Luke Bonfield, Carson Shaddy, and Jared Gates each hit a home run in the game as well. For Shaddy, it was his second in as many days.
