Hogs, Cavs scoreless through three innings

June, 17, 2009
OMAHA, Neb. -- It's scoreless through three innings here in Game 9 of the 2009 College World Series. And it's starting to look like a good pitchers' duel between Arkansas' Drew Smyly and Virginia's Danny Hultzen.

Arkansas threatened in the top half of the third when James McCann led off with an infield single and then advanced to third on a pair of groundouts. But Ben Tschepikow couldn't pick up the RBI -- he went down swinging after starting out with a 3-0 count against Hultzen.

Hultzen's line through three innings: 2 H, 4 K on 44 pitches (30 strikes). Smyly has been equally effective in his three innings of work: 3 H, 5 K on 45 pitches (31 strikes). And each pitcher has faced 11 batters.

The Razorbacks and Cavaliers have each left two men on base so far.
