KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Arkansas State allowed a dozen unanswered runs as the Red Wolves fell to Tennessee 12-3 on Wednesday.
The Red Wolves took an early 2-0 lead when Ryan Emery hit his first home run of the year at the top of the first inning, but Arkansas State’s bats went quiet after that. Tennessee tied the game in the second inning when Christin Stewart knocked in a two-run home run. The Volunteers piled on 10 more runs before Arkansas State’s Dustin Jones drove in a run in the ninth inning.
Both teams combined to use 13 pitchers on the night.
Arkansas State falls to 24-25 with the loss. The Red Wolves return to Sun Belt Conference play this weekend at Troy.
