McFadden Struggles, Wildcats Advance to Super Regional

Savannah grad gives up three runs to Arkansas, but Kansas State rallies to reach first Super Regional in program history. 

(MANHATTAN, Kan.) Savannah graduate Blake McFadden made the biggest start of his young career Sunday, albeit short-lived. 

Head coach Brad Hill gave the freshman the ball to start Kansas State's Regional Championship Game against Arkansas. He lasted only 1 2/3 innings, giving up the only three Razorback runs of the game, but avoided the loss. 

The Wildcats rallied to defeat Arkansas 4-3 to advance to the first Super Regional in program history. 

McFadden (6-2) struck out a pair, walked one, and gave up five hits in his outing while his ERA ballooned to 4.40. Gerardo Esquivel (2-2) picked up the win through 4 1/3 innings of work. 

Kansas State (44-17) went unbeaten through the Manhattan Regional and will face Oregon State in the Super Regional in a Best-of-3 series.
