FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Even in the cold and windy conditions Tuesday afternoon, the bats of No. 18 Arkansas were red hot as the Razorbacks plated 21 runs on 19 hits to beat Mississippi Valley State, 21-3, at Baum Stadium.

Luke Bonfield and Grant Koch each went 3-for-4 with four RBI, while Isaiah Campbell picked up his first victory of his career, allowing just one earned run over two innings with one strikeout in a planned short start.

James Teague, Barrett Loeske, Jordan Rodriguez, Kacey Murphy and Hunter Hart also got time on the mound today, combining for three runs given up on five hit and striking out nine.

Two of Bonfield's RBI came off the two-run blast hit over the right field wall in the third inning, his second of the year. Clark Eagan and Austin Catron also got in on the home run action helping Arkansas to its largest run total since the Hogs put up 18 runs on Missouri State in last year's first game of the NCAA Super Regionals.

The last time Arkansas scored 19 runs in a game was in 2010 against Grambling State (June 4, 2010) in the team's first game of the NCAA Fayetteville Regional.
