FAYETTEVILLE — Freshman right hander Heston Tole became the 21st Arkansas pitcher to see game action this season on Wednesday.

Tole's six-pitch ninth inning closed the No. 2 Razorbacks' 10-3 victory over Arkansas-Little Rock. Arkansas swept the two-game series at Baum-Walker Stadium.

Tole and fellow freshman right hander Gabe Starks each pitched one scoreless inning in relief, providing Arkansas fans a glimpse of pitchers who could factor into the Razorbacks' future plans.
