Contributed by: Arkansas Athletic Communications

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Carson Shaddy and Casey Martin each had two hits Sunday afternoon, but South Carolina topped Arkansas with an 8-5 victory in game two of the NCAA Fayetteville Super Regional at Baum Stadium.

The Gamecocks win evens up the best-of-three series at 1-1 with a winner-take-all game three set for Monday at 6 p.m. (CT) on ESPN.

Shaddy and freshman Heston Kjerstad both homered for the Razorbacks in the setback. For Shaddy it was his 12th of the year and for Kjerstad, his team-leading 14th of the year. However, the Hogs could never put together the big inning like they had on Saturday as South Carolina built up a six-run lead by the sixth inning.

Tomorrow’s game will mark the fourth time Arkansas will play a deciding third game in a Super Regional in its history and the seventh time the Razorbacks and Gamecocks have faced off this year.
