OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Ryne Stanek and Barrett Astin combined on a
four-hitter and Arkansas beat South Carolina 2-1 at the College
World Series on Monday night, ending the Gamecocks' NCAA tournament record winning streak at 22 games.
The Gamecocks (46-18) will have to beat Kent State on Wednesday to keep alive their hopes of winning a third straight national title.
The Razorbacks (46-20) earned two days off and need one more win to go to the best-of-three finals.
Matt Vinson's RBI single in the fourth inning gave Arkansas a 2-0 lead. Evan Marzilli's two-out triple pulled the Gamecocks within a run in the fifth, but they got just one hit the rest of the way.
Stanek (8-4) allowed three hits and turned the game over in the seventh inning to Astin, who earned his 11th save.
Colby Holmes (7-2) allowed two runs on four hits in 3 2-3 innings.
