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

(Continued)

LEXINGTON, Ky — Canfield roped the first hit of the day for the Hogs, a single to leftfield. Her two-out single was followed by a rocket up the middle from Amanda Geile, but it was snagged out of the air by Thomas in the circle to end the top of the second.

Beasley batted back in the second inning and worked a 1-2-3 frame. She struck out Sarah Moore and Carlie Rose, looking, in the inning.

Devon Wallace drew her NCAA-leading 75th walk of the season in the third inning with two outs. However, she would go stranded as Clarisa Navarro grounded out to retire the side.

Marston smashed her second hit of the day off of Sierra Bronkey's glove to start the bottom of the fourth. Hudson followed and went down swinging over a nice changeup from Beasley. Randazzo followed Beasley's third strikeout with a double off of the leftfield wall. Sykes continued the hit parade and had a two-run triple to make the score 4-0, Missouri. Another run was plated on the next pitch as Roth tallied a sacrifice fly. Beasley struck out Moore two batters later to keep the damage at a minimum.

Jennifer Rambo reached on an infield single with one out in the fourth. Bronkey followed the single and grounded it up the middle, Rambo was retired at second for out number two. Canfield had an excellent at-bat but was eventually struck out to end the top of the fourth.

After Beasley worked a scoreless fourth, Chelsea Cohen came out to work the fifth inning. The senior captain retired Randazzo but then allowed a standup double to Sykes. She came home to score in the next at bat as Roth snuck a ball over the leftfield fence. Her 13th homerun of the season gave Missouri a 7-0 lead.  Genovese walked in the next at bat and came around to score three batters later on a Crane triple. Her fourth three-bagger of the year ended the game in the fifth inning.

Arkansas now turns its attention to the NCAA tournament. The Hogs await their seed and will find out on Sunday at 9 p.m. CT during the NCAA selection show.

  • MLB: Rangers struggle in 9-3 loss to A's

    A rough month didn't get any better for Texas on Sunday night, even though the game-time temperature of 100 degrees would have seemed to be in the Rangers' favor against Oakland.

    However, they trailed 5-0 in the second inning en route to a 9-3 loss to the Athletics. Texas has lost 15 of its last 18 and dropped to 4-19 in July.

  • MLB: First-place Dodgers complete sweep of Giants

    Manager Don Mattingly hardly considers a late-July sweep in San Francisco a turning point to put his Dodgers in the driver's seat atop the NL West.

    Yet coming off consecutive series losses at St. Louis and Pittsburgh, Los Angeles needed some sort of spark as August approaches. The Dodgers found it in the ballpark of their biggest rival, and left the Bay Area in first place following an emphatic three-game swing.

    Carl Crawford hit an RBI triple to back Hyun-Jin Ryu's third straight victory, and division-leading Los Angeles beat the Giants 4-3 Sunday night to establish some momentum behind their pitching and offense.
