Centenary 8, Arkansas 3

SHREVEPORT, La. - Senior Ben Tschepikow went 3-for-3 and drove in all three Arkansas runs, but the Razorbacks got little else as the Razorbacks fell 8-3 on Tuesday.

The Razorbacks (9-3) committed four errors in the game to fall behind 4-0. The Hogs would scratch out a run in that inning when Scott Lyons led off with a single. Lyons would move to second on a passed ball and score on a Tschepikow single up the middle.

The Razorbacks would make it a one-run game in the top of the sixth on Tschepikow's fourth home run of the year, a towering shot over the right-field wall.

Centenary (6-3) would add a fifth run in the bottom of the sixth and then blew things open with three more against the Arkansas bullpen.

Arkansas' struggles in the field started in the first when a steal attempt by the Gents forced an errant throw by catcher Ryan Cisterna allowing the runner to advance to third. A catcher's interference call on the next batter accounted for another error as the Gents tallied two runs on three hits and two errors in the first off Razorbacks starter Brett Eibner (1-2).

An error in each of the next two innings by the Razorbacks led to single runs for the Gents and helped Centenary take control.

Tschepikow would match a season high with three hits in the game including a walk to improve his season batting average to .385. Along with Tschepikow, Lyons collected two hits while Jarrod McKinney and Jacob House added one each.

The Razorbacks and Gents are scheduled to conclude their series at 2 p.m. today.
