Franklin makes most of his chance in the 10th

FAYETTEVILLE — Christian Franklin came into the interview room Saturday wearing a Mike Tyson T-shirt.

It was fitting attire for the player who had just knocked out the Auburn Tigers.

Franklin’s one-out single in the 10th inning gave Arkansas a 6-5 victory at Baum-Walker Stadium.

The No. 2 Razorbacks won the series by coming back from a 5-0 deficit in the sixth inning, one day after overcoming a four-run deficit in the seventh.

Arkansas (22-4, 7-2 SEC) won for the eighth time this season when trailing by three or more runs, and the five-run deficit was its largest to overcome in a game this year.
