Arkansas wins thriller, 2-1, over Bama

Arkansas starter Trey Killian celebrates the final out during the Hogs’ 2-1 come-from-behind win over Alabama Saturday, March 22, 2014, at Baum Stadium in Fayetteville. Arkansas’ Trey Killian pitched a complete game and the Hogs’ otherwise-silent bats came alive in the seventh and eighth innings to pull out the win, 2-1.

Games that are decided by one big play or the performance of one player are fun to cover, and this game fit both bills. Killian was an Iron Man and a clutch hit by pinch-hitter Eric Fisher won it for Killian and the Hogs. Killian emotes more than the average college ball player, making a great photo at the end.
