CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) – Brady Slavens hit a walk-off single to give Arkansas a 4-3 win over UNC-Chapel Hill and the Razorbacks swept the best-of-three Chapel Hill Super Regional Sunday evening.
Arkansas clinched the 11th trip to the College World Series in program history. North Carolina (42-22) took its first lead when Tomas Frick led off the top of the ninth with a double and then scored on a two-out single to right by Patrick Alvarez to make it 3-2.
Jalen Battles and Peyton Stovall hit back-to-back singles and Kendall Diggs walked to load the bases in the bottom of the ninth.
Battles scored when Braydon Webb reached on a fielder’s choice and, after Caden O’Brien replaced Davis Palermo, Slavens hit a ground ball through the right side that brought home Stovall to end it.
