OMAHA—This is not how heavily favored Cal State Fullerton envisioned this game starting. Underdog Arkansas jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first thanks to some small ball, and the Hogs increased the margin to 4-0 with a long ball in the third. Freshman third baseman Zack Cox was involved in both rallies, singling home a run in the first and crushing a two-run homer into the yellow seats in the right-field bleachers in the third. Cox has as much raw power as any hitter at this event, and today might just be his national coming-out party.
Meanwhile, Arkansas lefthander Dallas Keuchel looks very strong so far, allowing just a harmless single through the first two innings. His heavy sinker has induced four groundball outs and a strikeout through two innings.
Arkansas appears loose and confident, and I think it was critical for the Razorbacks to avoid falling behind early today. Could there be an upset brewing?
