Arkansas Baseball’s strong end to the 2022 season caught the attention of one national poll.
D1Baseball.com released their end-of-season poll on Monday, where they placed the Razorbacks No. 4 behind Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and National Champion Ole Miss. Arkansas ends the season by making a 19-spot climb from the No. 23 spot in the rankings when the poll was last conducted on May 31.
Arkansas ended the month of May by dropping six of their final eight games of the month, which included losing two games in the SEC Tournament.
The Razorbacks found a spark once the calendar turned to June, and played with the same intensity that made them so successful at the beginning of the season, where they opened the conference slate with three-straight SEC series wins.
Arkansas put on an offensive clinic in the Stillwater Regional, where they scored 44 runs on their way to winning the regional. They would then take care of North Carolina by winning the Chapel Hill Super Regional in two games, which set them up to compete in the College World Series for the 11th time in program history.
Arkansas would then go 3-2 in Omaha, which would be their longest run in the College World Series since competing in the final series in 2018.
