When Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn walked to the mound at Globe Life Field on Feb. 18 to take the ball from Gage Wood, the Razorback skipper saw a freshman that was very nervous on a big stage. Fast forward a few more shaky outings and just less than two months later, and Wood has emerged as a legit closer for the Diamond Hogs. The right-hander tossed three innings, allowed one run and struck out six during a 6-3 series-clinching win over the Tennessee Volunteers.
