Murphy was none too pleased about Memphis' Chris Carrier breaking one of baseball's unwritten rules and he eventually picked him off, helping Arkansas (31-8) complete the midweek sweep with a 2-0 win over the Tigers at Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock.

Arkansas fell behind to Memphis after one inning three to nothing on the Andy Bowman three run home run to center field in the first.

Chad Spanberger went 2-4 at the plate with a single and double driving in four runs while Jake Arledge, Luke Bonfield and Jax Biggers also drove in two runs to lead the Hogs at the plate. The Razorbacks move to 30-8 on the season while Memphis drops to 21-16. The Tigers are a game behind the first place Razorbacks in the conference standings. The home run was his ninth of the year, tying catcher Grant Koch for the team lead.

By the second inning Arkansas tied it 3-3, led 7-3 after three, then tallied four in the fifth and five in the sixth for an eventual 16-7 rout. He improved to 4-0 with seven strikeouts on only 90 pitches.

For most of Wednesday's game, Memphis could not hit Kacey Murphy.

Arkansas almost threw a combined no-hitter against Memphis on Wednesday.

Murphy retired the first 11 batters he faced before giving up a walk to Carrier in the fourth inning. He extended his hit streak to 12 games with a first-inning single. However, the Hogs couldn't punch in the run.

Fletcher set season highs of four RBI and three runs scored. Hicks finished with six innings pitched and six hits scattered to go along with the two earned runs off the homer. Even after getting to the Tiger bullpen, Arkansas did not manage a hit over the final two innings.
