GCU baseball falls to Arkansas in Stillwater Regional
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Cayden Wallace, who hit two home runs, and Michael Turner both drove in three runs and No. 2 seeded Arkansas defeated No. 3 seed Grand Canyon 7-1 on Friday in the Stillwater Regional.
Wallace plated a run when he was hit by a pitch and Turner followed with a two-run single in a four-run second inning that put the Razorbacks on top 5-0.
That was plenty for Connor Noland (6-5), who scattered six hits in seven innings.
Arkansas (39-18), which ended a four-game losing streak, faces the winner of Missouri State-Oklahoma State on Saturday after Grand Canyon (41-20) meets the loser.
Wallace opened the scoring with a two-out solo home run in the bottom of the first and did the same in the fourth. Turner, who had three hits, had an RBI single in the sixth.
Tayler Aguilar led off the fourth with a home run for the Lopes.
GCU will play No. 4 seeded Missouri State on Saturday at 10 a.m. after the Bears lost 10-5 to the No. 1 seeded Oklahoma State Cowboys.
