Carr drives in three runs in Oklahoma State win

6/4/2006

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Adam Carr's three-run homer in the
sixth inning led Oklahoma State to a 6-5 victory Sunday over
Arkansas, keeping the Cowboys alive in the NCAA Fayetteville
Regional.
The win put Oklahoma State (41-19) into a game Sunday night with
Oral Roberts for the regional championship. The Razorbacks end
their season with a 39-21 record.
Cowboys left-fielder Ty Wright saved the win with a ninth-inning
catch that ended the game. After Arkansas' Jake Dugger singled to
right field, and Brian Walker roped a line drive to left, but
Wright caught Walker's hit as he crashed into the left field wall.
Oklahoma State starter Oliver Odle (5-4) picked up the victory
with 6 1/3 innings of work, striking out three batters and giving
up three earned runs. Arkansas starter Daryl Maday was tagged with
the loss, and he ended the season with a 2-3 record.
Arkansas jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the third inning when Craig
Gentry's double to left field scored Logan Forsythe. Gentry later
scored on an error by Cowboy shortstop Jordy Mercer. The Razorbacks
made it 3-0 in the fifth inning when Dugger hit a single to
left-center that scored Gentry from second base.
Oklahoma State's five-run sixth inning started when Corey Brown
hit a solo home run. Maday then gave up a double to John Schindler
and hit Keanon Simon with a pitch to set up Carr's three-run blast.
Matt Clarkson finished the inning when he roped a single to center
to score Shelby Ford.
Arkansas responded with two runs in the seventh and eighth
innings, on hits by Gentry and Clint Arnold. But the Cowboys scored
again in the eighth on another RBI-single from Clarkson to take a
one-run lead that survived the rest of the game.
