Michael Turner finished 4-for-6, while Peyton Stovall had four RBI and Robert Moore reached base five times, scoring three runs.

Connor Noland earned the win, giving up just six hits, a walk and two runs in 7.2 innings, while Stanford's Alex Williams (eight hits, five runs and two walks in 4.1 innings) took the loss.

The Razorbacks blew open a 1-1 game in the top of the fifth, pushing five runs across in the inning. Three runs in the seventh, two in the eighth and six in the ninth ended any comeback hopes the Cardinal might have harbored.

Arkansas now awaits the winner of Ole Miss and Auburn in the winner's bracket, while Stanford will face the loser with its season on the line.
