Gents Have Trouble with Hogs
Tuesday, March 25, 2008

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – It was a tough Tuesday night for the Centenary (13-5) baseball team, as it was blanked by Arkansas (15-8), 9-0.

The Gents couldn’t figure out the Hogs pitching, as they only collected two base hits on the night. Senior Cameron Penney moved his hitting streak to five games on a single to right field in the second inning, while junior Ricky Imperiali got Centenary’s other hit with a double to the gap.

Travis Hill got the call for Arkansas, as he went six innings to the win, as he gave up just the two base hits and a walk. Evan Cox came in the seventh and finished the game picking up a three inning save.

Arkansas’ offense, meanwhile, stayed true to its form, as it belted three home runs on the night, which moved the Razorbacks season long ball total to 40. Leading the Hogs offense was Andy Wilkins, who went 2-for-5 with five RBIs and a homer.

Getting the start for Centenary on the mound was senior Johnny Noland, who allowed six runs, all earned and three walks. Senior Matt Clark had a nice outing in relief, as he went a season-long three innings, scattering three hits and giving up one run.

The same two teams will meet tomorrow, with the game slated to begin at 2:35 p.m. Arkansas will also have free live stats at www.hogwired.com.
