Facing a 1-0 count with runners on first and second base, Robinett, who goes by the nickname “Big Country,” reached down and golfed a pitch beyond the center field wall to give Arkansas a 4-1 lead over the Tigers. Robinett’s blast traveled 421 feet, and opened the flood gates for the Razorbacks.

After a run-scoring sacrifice fly, Kendall Diggs cleared the bases with a grand slam, as Arkansas went up 9-1 on LSU, and that cleared out the right field Diamond Deck for the Tigers’ faithful.
