Midseason lull fuels Arkansas' postseason run

Arkansas advanced to its third Super Regional in four years with last weekend's win at the Houston Regional.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas advanced to its third Super Regional in four years with last weekend's win at the Houston Regional.

Next up for the Razorbacks (42-19) is a matchup at Baylor (48-15) this weekend, with the winner advancing to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb.

Arkansas opened this season 22-3 and climbed as high as No. 3 in the rankings before a 5-8 stretch in the midseason nearly dropped it out of the rankings altogether. The Razorbacks then went two-and-out at the Southeastern Conference tournament before winning three straight at last weekend's regional.

Junior third baseman Matt Reynolds' .343 average leads Arkansas, which last went to the College World Series in 2009.

The Bears are making their first super regional appearance since 2005.
