FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Carson Shaddy's go-ahead triple in the eighth inning finished off a three-run comeback for the Razorback baseball team Tuesday night as it defeated No. 22 Oklahoma State 7-6 at Baum Stadium. Arkansas (25-16) is now winners of four of its last five games heading into its series with No. 2 Texas A&M this weekend.

The Razorbacks found themselves down 5-2 after the top of the sixth inning, but the Hogs started chipping away with two runs in the sixth and then the tying run in the seventh. Shaddy's triple finished off a 3-for-5 night for the Fayetteville-native as it was his first triple of the season.

James Teague picked up the win, his third of the year after throwing 1 1/3 innings, giving up just one earned run on two hits with three strikeouts. Teague tried to finish out the ninth inning, getting two quick outs, but then gave up a double and an RBI single, allowing the Cowboys to pull within a run.

Blaine Knight got the final out in the ninth, getting Colin Simpson to foul out, earning his first save of the season.

The Razorbacks stay at home this weekend as they welcome the 2nd-ranked Aggies to Baum Stadium for a three-game series starting on Friday. First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m. and will be broadcast on SEC Network+.
