Bobby Cramer struck out the side in the sixth before the no-hitter came undone in the seventh. Adam Morrissey struck out, but reached on a passed ball before Cramer hit Sean Rodriguez and yielded a one-out RBI single to Aaron Peel.
Adam Thomas pitched a perfect eighth and Brad Kilby yielded one hit while striking out three in the ninth to close it out.
Richie Robnett, Luke Appert and Vince Faison homered for Midland, which won for only the second time in its last 10 road games.
Arkansas starter Chris Saenz (1-7) remained winless in his last 16 appearances after surrendering six runs on seven hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 2 2/3 frames.
