The Arkansas Razorbacks dropped a 1-0 heartbreaker to Florida State on Saturday, June 15, in its first game of the 2019 College World Series at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha.

Arkansas (46-18) opens play Saturday night against Florida State (41-21), which will be trying to win retiring coach and NCAA all-time wins leader Mike Martin his first national championship in his 17 visits to Omaha. "Lights out performance on both sides, and I'm glad we came out on top". Parrish got the win by giving up five hits and two walks while striking out nine in eight scoreless innings.

He was never better than in the eighth, when Christian Franklin doubled into the right-field corner leading off and was on third after a groundout.

He retired the the Seminoles in order that inning, but ran into trouble in the aforementioned ninth. The ball popped loose and Martin's glove fell off, with Martin shaking his left hand in pain after the play. Flowers scored when right fielder Heston Kjerstad's throw home on Nander De Sedas' shallow sacrifice fly was up the third-base line.

Flowers, who is also the Seminoles' closer, retired Arkansas in order to earn the save and clinch the victory. He's given up two or fewer runs in seven straight starts. "He probably didn't have his best stuff early, kind of kicked it into gear in the middle a little bit and got out of a jam or two".

The 'Noles have now won seven consecutive games, dating back to the ACC Tournament.

The College World Series gets underway Saturday in Omaha, Nebraska.

That set up the sacrifices by Nelson and De Sedas, which came against Arkansas closer Matt Cronin and scored Flowers. Arkansas would lead off with a double, the first extra base hit of the game.

For head coach Mike Martin, it has been quite the turnaround for a team that at one point of the season wasn't even in the conversation for a postseason berth - and now, sits a minimum of three wins away from making it to the championship series and a shot at the first national title in program history and to send Martin out with a title in his 40th and final season.
