Jeremy Eierman came through again for Missouri State.
Eierman’s two-run homer in the sixth inning powered the Bears to a 3-2 win over Arkansas for the Fayetteville Regional title on Monday night in Fayetteville, Ark.
His two-out homer in the ninth gave the Bears a walk-off win over Oklahoma State on Friday. He finished the regional with three homers and six RBIs.
Pitching on two days rest, Missouri State starter Doug Still limited the top-seeded Razorbacks to one run and four hits in 5-plus innings. Bryan Young and Jordan Knutson combined to give up just one hit in four innings of relief.
Never miss a local story.
The Bears (43-18) will play TCU (45-16) in a best-of-three Super Regional matchup this weekend in Fort Worth, Texas.
