Diamond Hogs roll Little Rock, get set for LSU

Poor Little Rock. The Trojans didn’t even stand a chance.

No. 1 Arkansas jolted their sister school from the capital city on Tuesday from Baum-Walker Stadium, 11-0, in seven innings. The win returned the Diamond Hogs to the black side of the ledger after seeing a 15-game winning streak snapped Sunday against Auburn.

Wehiwa Aloy did a bulk of Arkansas’ damage against the school formerly known as UALR. The Diamond Hogs shortstop went 3 for 3 with a walk, a home run, four RBI and two runs. The jack came in the sixth, an inning in which Arkansas plated six runs to reach the run-rule threshold.

Peyton Stovall, Will Edmundson and Jack Wagner also homered for Arkansas.

On the hill, Ben Bybee made his season debut for the Razorbacks after losing the start of the year with mono. Bybee needed only work three innings where he allowed just one hit while striking out five. Arkansas had given him a two-run lead already heading into the second after a sacrifice fly and a bases-loaded bean-ball in the first.

The Diamond Hogs are now set for their toughest series of the season to this point. Arkansas will host No. 8 LSU for three games in Fayetteville on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
