2012 NCAA Baseball Super Regional: Baylor Suffers Heartbreaking 5-4 Loss To Arkansas

The Baylor Bears were three outs away from advancing to Omaha but instead saw the Arkansas Razorbacks come from behind to win 5-4 on Sunday forcing a decisive Game 3 on Monday. Back-to-back hit batters delivered home the game tying and winning runs just two batters after shortstop Jake Miller booted what looked like a game-ending double play.

The inning started with a walk to Matt Reynolds. Dominic Ficociello popped up for the first out and Brian Anderson followed with a single to center. Bo Bigham then grounded to Miller at short who bobbled the transfer to load the bases. Pinch hitter Jimmy Bosco was then hit by a pitch that forced home Reynolds and tied the game 4-4. Crayton Bare relieved Max Garner and then hit the first batter he faced in John Clay Reeves to give the Razorbacks the win.

Trent Daniel picks up the win in relief for Arkansas while Garner is tagged with the tough luck loss. The two teams will tangle one more time on Monday with the winner advancing to Omaha and the College World Series.
