FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Patrick Wicklander combined with two relievers on a five-hitter and Arkansas advanced to host a super regional for the second straight year with a 6-0 victory over TCU on Sunday night.

Dominic Fletcher had a two-run double in a three-run first inning and Matt Goodheart connected on a two-run homer in the fifth.

Arkansas (44-17), seeded fifth nationally, swept a home regional for the second consecutive year and will face Mississippi in a best-of-3 super regional in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The Razorback were an out away from the national title last year before losing twice to Oregon State in the College World Series.

The Horned Frogs (34-28) had reached the CWS four straight years starting in 2014 before getting left out of the NCAA Tournament last year. They were a surprise at-large choice before beating California in their regional opener and getting a 9-5 win over Central Connecticut State in an elimination game earlier Sunday.

TCU lost to Arkansas on consecutive days in matchups of teams with 10 CWS appearances between them — five each — since 2004.

Wicklander (6-2) allowed three hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in five innings. Cody Scroggins struck out four in 2 2/3 innings, and Jacob Kostyshock struck out the side in the ninth.

Jared Janczak (0-4) allowed seven hits and five runs with eight strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings.
