Pratt's escape lifts Arkansas over Wash St 6-4

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Jordan Pratt helped Arkansas escape a bases-loaded jam with no outs in the eighth inning, and the Razorbacks held on for a 6-4 win over Washington State on Saturday night in the Fayetteville Regional.

Washington State (35-21) will play Kansas State on Sunday, with the winner of that game facing Arkansas and needing to beat the Hogs (42-18) twice to win the regional.

Pratt came in with the bases full and nobody out and the Razorbacks up 5-4. He retired Matt Fanelli on a popout, Michael Weber on a strikeout and Shea Vucinich on a flyout to preserve the lead.

Arkansas' Collin Kuhn led off the top of the ninth with a homer, and Pratt pitched the bottom half for his second save of the season.
