TALLAHASSEE — Mike Bolsinger threw five scoreless innings and Arkansas scored four of its runs without a hit to defeat Florida State 7-2 in a Super Region game that took more than nine hours to complete Friday because of rain delays.
Florida State (45-17) must win two straight in the best-of-three series to make the College World Series for a second straight year.
Bolsinger (6-4) fanned six and scattered four hits after replacing starter Dallas Keuchel. FSU starter Sean Gilmartin, who threw 70 pitches, did not return after the third and longest delay of 4 hours, 22 minutes.
The Razorbacks (38-22) took a 5-2 lead in the seventh, scoring three without a hit.
Basketball: Memphis SAT probe grows
ATLANTA — Robert Dozier is the second men's player on the 2008 Memphis national finalist team to have questions arise about his entrance exams.
University officials already were preparing for an NCAA hearing today to answer charges that a player, believed to be Derrick Rose, cheated on his SAT exam.
Dozier's inconsistent SAT scores prevented him from being admitted to Georgia. His initial score was invalidated by the company that scores the exam, and his followup score was dramatically lower, 540 points, according to Georgia records.
