Five of the top eight seeds were unbeaten through two days of an NCAA baseball tournament marked by potent offenses and few surprises until Arkansas staged a dramatic comeback against No. 7 Oklahoma State. No. 1 Tennessee, No. 4 Virginia Tech, No. 5 Texas A&M and No. 8 East Carolina advanced to regional finals. Arkansas was down 10-5 in before exploding for 15 runs over the final three innings and beating the Cowboys 20-12. Five teams scored at least 20 runs Saturday, and one or both teams scored in double digits in 14 of the 30 games.
