Arkansas starter Randall Fant had another solid outing, and the Razorback bats came alive Sunday to help the Hogs down the Bryant Bulldogs 12-3.

Fant pitched 5 2/3 innings for the Razorbacks, allowing only two runs on six hits, and Razorback relievers Brandon Moore and Landon Simpson allowed only one more run to close the door on the Bulldogs.

Joe Serrano had three hits, and Jacob Mahan and Brett McAfee had 3 RBI’s a piece to lead an active Razorback offense on Sunday.

Next up, Arkansas will face regional hosts Kansas State Sunday night at 7 p.m. Left-hander Tyler Right will get the start for the Hogs.

If Arkansas can defeat the Wildcats Sunday night, they’d have to beat them again at 7 p.m. on Monday to win the regional. Kansas State is undefeated in the regional thus far.

Tonight’s game will be televised by ESPNU and ESPN3.
