SOFTBALL: Arkansas takes series from No. 8 Missouri

COLUMBIA, Mo. — The University of Arkansas softball team defeated the No. 8 Missouri Tigers, 11-10, in eight innings on Sunday in Columbia, Mo. at University Field.

Arkansas rallied from a 5-4 deficit and scored six runs in the seventh inning. Missouri answered with five runs of its own to tie the game in the bottom half of the inning. The Hogs scored in the top of the eighth and senior pitcher Chelsea Cohen worked a scoreless final frame to give Arkansas its first series win over a Top 10 team, on the road, since April 2010.

“That was a crazy game,” head coach Mike Larabee said. “We gave a national audience a great show. This is going to be a great rivalry going forward. I am happy with the way our kids kept fighting. We wanted it more today.”

Clarisa Navarro scored the game-winning run in the top of the 8th inning on a wild pitch. The junior from La Joya, Texas went 3-for-4 on the day and tied the game in the top of the seventh with a solo-homerun. Her defense proved key in the bottom of the eighth when she turned a double play with the bases loaded and zero outs in the inning.

“Navarro had an amazing day,” Larabee said. “She played solid defense all game and reached base every time that she was at bat today.”

Amanda Geile put the Hogs ahead in the seventh inning on a three-run homerun to make the score 8-5. Chloe Oprzedek also homered in the game, a two-run blast in the fifth inning.

After two walks in game two, Wallace walked to start game three. This gave the sophomore an NCAA-leading 57 on the year. She was caught stealing and broke a 9-for-9 stolen base streak to end inning number one.

Emily Crane reached base on an infield single to start Missouri’s half of the first. She stole second and eventually scored on a two-out single from Angela Randazzo. Arkansas starter Kimmy Beasley battled back and struck out Kelsea Roth to end the first and keep the score at 1-0.
