FAYETTEVILLE, AR (KLKN) – Nebraska baseball upset No. 1 Arkansas 5-3 to force a game seven in the Fayetteville regional.

Kyle Perry got the call and threw his best and longest outing of the season. He threw 4.1 innings only giving up three hits with seven strikeouts. He handed the ball off the Spencer Schwellenbach in the fifth who finished this game out.

The offense was still riding a high from game one as Jaxon Hallmark started the game with a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning to take an early 1-0 lead. The Hogs reclaimed the lead off a wild pitch from Perry that scored two runs. The biggest hit of the game though came from Griffin Everett in the bottom of the fifth, a two-out single that gave Nebraska the 5-3 lead.

Nebraska hands Arkansas their first loss of the regional. They will play in the Fayetteville regional final tomorrow at 6 p.m.
