SOFTBALL: Arkansas sweeps Day 2 of Red Desert Classic

ST. GEORGE, Utah — The University of Arkansas softball team defeated the Loyola Marymount Lions, 8-3 and the Weber State Wildcats, 10-2 in five innings, at the Red Desert Classic in St. George, Utah.

The Arkansas pitching staff led the team to two victories on day two of the Red Desert Classic. Kimmy Beasley led the Razorbacks in game one against LMU. She recorded eight strikeouts while only allowing two hits and one earned run in 4.2 innings of work. Hope McLemore was able to come in and finish the job in game one. She threw 2.1 innings, struck out a batter and allowed one run. Game two also featured a strong pitching performance, this time by freshman Kelly Young. She went five innings, striking out nine and allowed only one earned run. Head coach Mike Larabee praised his freshman pitcher.

“Young did a nice job in her first start,” Larabee said. “She had nine strikeouts in five innings. We recruited Kelly because she is a winner. She was 26-and-0 in postseason games in high school. She is a competitor and one of the hardest workers on our team. She just loves to compete.”

The Razorback bats were also in full swing as Arkansas outscored its opponents 18-5 in the two games. The Hogs were led in game one by Devon Wallace, Clarissa Navarro and Chloe Oprzedek, all three notched three hits in the game. Navarro, Nicole Schroeder and freshman Claire Clark all netted three RBI. In game two the team was led again by Wallace, she went 1-for-2 with two walks, three runs scored and a three-run homerun that landed in the bullpen behind the centerfield fence. Schroeder and Jayme Gee also delivered solo homeruns in game two.

“I thought we swung the bats really well today,” Larabee said. “We had some runners on base that we need to get home, but the good thing is that we are getting the runners on base. It was nice to see three balls leave the yard. Schroeder and Gee got their first ones and Devon Wallace hit a no-doubter.”
