FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansas — The Grambling State baseball lost 0-2 to the Arkansas Razorbacks in a two-game series played at the Baum-Walker Field on March 15 and 16.

Game One (Arkansas 14, GSU 1) 

The Tigers got off to a positive start when Shemar Page laced a two-out RBI single, scoring Cameron Bufford to take the lead 1-0.

However, the Razorbacks hit back in the bottom of the second inning, scoring three runs to take a 3-1 lead.

From then on, the Razorbacks went through the Tigers like a hot blade through butter, scoring three more runs in the fifth inning with Michael Turner hitting a home run.

Any hopes of a Tiger comeback were vanquished when Arkansas’ Braydon Webb put the game to bed when he hit a grand slam, making the score 14-1 in favor of the Razorbacks.

Game 2 (Arkansas 13, GSU 3)

For game two, the Tigers put up a stronger fight than in the series opener, but the number three ranked Razorbacks again proved to be too strong.

The Tigers trailed 0-3 from the first inning but were able to get on the scoreboard in the second. Shemar Page hit a homer at the beginning of the second inning. Page’s home run was followed by a Trevor Hatton single. Keylon Mack doubled Hatton home to cut the Razorbacks’ lead 3-2.

The Razorbacks’ Chris Lanzilli hit a single to drive in Cayden Wallace, who had also singled to push Arkansas’ lead to 4-2.

Grambling’s Jarficur Parker hit a home run in the third inning to bring the score to 4-3. That would be the last point on the board for the Tigers.

The game finished 13-3 in favor of Arkansas.
