OMAHA, Heaven. – Connor Noland’s offensive outburst and stellar start led Arkansas to a 17-2 victory over Stanford in the first round of the World College Series on Saturday afternoon at Charles Schwab Field.

Noland was great in raising his eighth win, allowing two runs with six hits in 7.2 innings and just 79 pitches. After a home run at the bottom of Brock Jones’ first inning, Noland settled in and moved on to the Cardinal squad. The right hand uses a double game ending in inning to end the first and give a series of 10 consecutive withdrawals before a single exit interrupts the series at the bottom of the fifth. He sat eight straight to work at the end of the eighth, when his first walk of the afternoon ended this series.

With a cruise from Noland, the Arkansas attack joined at high speed in the heel with five runs to give the senior everything he needed to keep the Razorbacks in the winner’s standings. Consecutive singles by Brady Slavens and Caden Wallace started the inning before Chris Lanzili’s homer with three runs in the left field took the big hit and took the lead. Robert Moore scored a goal in the wild, and Zack Gregory’s RBI single ended the rally.

However, the players were not ready, adding three more runs in the seventh, two more in the eighth and accumulated six more in the ninth, while setting a program record for goals in a match of the World College Series with 21. Moore tore leadoff doubles in the right corner of the field to open the eighth and immediately scored a single by Jalen Battles. Battles ensued to score a single from Slavens and Brayden Webb touched the home side thanks to a double out from Wallace. In the eighth, freshman Peyton Stoval joined the hit parade with a double run to give all nine pigs in the lineup at least one hit. Wallace’s 16th home run of the season found the stands in the right center field for a two-run strike at the top of the ninth.

Michael Turner took the lead with four goals in his first CWS game of his career, scoring four times. Wallace drove in three runs with three hits, and Stoval drove in four runs with a high game with a pair of singles. All nine Arkansas starters had at least two goals in the win.
