SEC SOFTBALL: No. 7 Mizzou shuts out No. 21 Arkansas

LEXINGTON, Ky — The No. 21 University of Arkansas softball team fell to the No. 7 Missouri Tigers, 8-0, in five innings on Thursday in Lexington, Ky.

Arkansas (34-18, 12-11) dropped its first SEC Tournament game since 2010 to the Tigers. Kimmy Beasley got the start and pitched four innings. The sophomore gave up five runs on seven hits, while striking out four. The Razorbacks notched two hits off of SEC Pitcher of the Year Chelsea Thomas, who picked up her 21st win of the season.

"Kimmy didn't get ahead in counts today," head coach Mike Larabee said. "Missouri used great plate discipline. They did a good job of capitalizing on that tonight."

The Razorbacks return home and await their fate in the NCAA Tournament draw. The Hogs will find out their seed during the NCAA selection show on Sunday at 9 p.m. CT. The tournament selection show will be broadcast live on ESPNU. Arkansas has won eight of its last ten games.

"We are not going to let one game define our season," Larabee said. "Maybe the game today happened for a reason. This will keep us humble and we can't wait to find out where we are going for a regional. We have to take out our frustrations on our next opponent."

Missouri began the bottom of the first with a leadoff single from Emily Crane. Jenna Marston followed the single and cracked a double into the leftfield wall. That put two runners on for Nicole Hudson, who skied a ball to Stephanie Canfield in centerfield and collected a sacrifice fly. Mackenzie Sykes was then hit by a pitch to put runners at the corners for Kelsea Roth. She worked a 3-2 count before notching an infield single. Marston scored on the play to make it 2-0. Beasley batted back and retired Corrin Genovese and Sarah Moore to end the inning.
