Missouri State ended its longest losing streak in two years scoring 12 times in the first five innings, including eight runs in the fifth inning to hand Arkansas a 14-6 loss and end the Razorbacks five-game win streak at Hammons Field.
The Bears scored their second-largest run total in the clubs’ 78-game series history with Arkansas. MSU recorded 12 hits, drew eight walks and went 7-for-18 with runners in scoring position against a total of eight UA hurlers on the night to put an end to a five-game losing streak.
Alex Jefferson finished his night 3-for-4 with three runs batted-in and three runs scored, while Jake Burger came within a double of hitting for the cycle in logging his fifth game this season with at least four RBIs.
The Bears came within one run of their best single-game total against the Razorbacks (26-19), which came on April 5, 1978 with a 15-4 win in Springfield. MSU improved to 19-5 at Hammons Field in 2016, notching its first home decision over the Razorbacks since 2006.
