SOFTBALL: Hogs' Larabee earns 200th win in Woo Pig title game


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Schroder cut the lead in half as she led off the second inning with a solo-homerun to dead centerfield. She hit the bomb after working a 3-2 count.

Cohen continued to struggle in the second as she struck out her fourth batter of the game to start the bottom half but then walked Amanda Martinez. Ella Denes followed the walk with an infield single to bring up Krystal Ruth with one out and two runners on. Cohen battled back to retire the last two batters of the inning.

She continued the momentum from the second and cruised through the lineup in the third. Cohen was helped out by second baseman Sierra Bronkey on a nice backhand play for out number one. The senior captain then struck out Tabor and got Savannah Sloan to pop out to end the inning.

Cohen struck out the side in the fourth to give her eight strikeouts on the day. This would be Cohen’s last inning as she went four innings, giving up two runs on two hits, while striking out eight.

Arkansas gave its pitcher some help in the fifth as Oprzedek led off the inning with an inside the park homerun. The ball deflected off of the top of the centerfield wall and got away from the centerfielder, Denes. By the time she ran down the ball Oprzedek had hustled her way home, evening the game at two runs apiece.

Kimmy Beasley came in to work the fifth and she breezed through the next six batters that she faced, striking out four. The sophomore picked up the win after retiring nine of the ten batters that she faced in the game.

Wallace started the seventh inning with a solo homerun over the leftfield fence to give Arkansas a 3-2 lead. The 2012 SEC freshman of the year capped the Woo Pig Classic with her third homerun of the weekend. The bomb gave Arkansas its 16th win of the season.


Next up for the Hogs will be a home series with Utah Valley University. Game one of the series will be Friday, March 8 at 6 p.m.
