Arkansas' beleaguered midweek pitching staff finally broke through Wednesday.
Keaton McKinney and James Teague combined to pitch all nine innings of the Razorbacks' 7-3 win over Memphis at AutoZone Ballpark in Memphis. The Razorbacks won in the midweek for just the second time this season and snapped the Tigers' 11-game win streak.
McKinney and Teague scattered 11 hits. Teague pitched five innings in relief to earn the win and didn't allow a run until giving up a sacrifice fly with two outs in the ninth inning.
Arkansas (12-12) took the lead for good on Bobby Wernes' leadoff home run in the sixth inning that broke a 2-2 tie.
The Razorbacks extended the lead to 6-2 with a two-run triple by Andrew Benintendi and a sacrifice fly by Clark Eagan in the seventh inning. Arkansas added another run in the eighth when Tyler Spoon recorded an RBI single in a pinch-hit at-bat.
Memphis (15-15) took a 1-0 first inning lead after Joe Serrano committed an error while playing first base for the Razorbacks.
Arkansas tied the game in the fourth inning when Chad Spanberger drew a bases-loaded walk with two outs. Wernes scored later in the inning on an error to give the Razorbacks a 2-1 lead.
Memphis beat Arkansas 5-4 Tuesday in North Little Rock. The Razorbacks will play their third game in a third different city Thursday when they host Ole Miss at Baum Stadium in Fayetteville.
