Arkansas Softball Sweeps Fall Games

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The University of Arkansas softball team (2-0) began its fall schedule by winning a pair of games Wednesday afternoon at Bogle Park. Devon Wallace hit a grand slam and lifted the Razorbacks to an 8-0 win over Butler CC, while Kasey Fagan drove in seven runs and led UA to a 14-0 victory over Evangel.

Arkansas head coach Mike Larabee was pleased not only with the run production from the Razorbacks, but also the efficient work from UA's pitchers. 

"I was real excited about tonight," head coach Mike Larabee said. "I thought all four of our pitchers threw really well. Any time you don't give up runs, you're going to win a lot of games.

Jumping out to a 5-0 lead through the first two innings against Butler CC, the Razorbacks never looked back the rest of the way, adding two additional runs in the sixth inning and ensuring the win.

Kasey Fagan toted the rubber for Arkansas versus the grizzlies, as the junior from Dunnellon, Fla., pitched five innings and recorded three strikeouts. Kelsey Berlin stepped in to close the game out and earn the save.

"I thought in that first game we executed very well," Coach Larabee said. "As far as moving runners, sacrifice flies, getting our bunts down and things like that. I was very pleased with our execution in the game against Butler."

The Razorbacks let their bats set the tone in the second game of the night against Evangel, scoring 14 runs through six innings and ending the night with 12 hits. Kelly Young earned the win, as the sophomore from Madison, Miss., recorded two strikeouts and allowed just two hits through four innings of work.

Outscoring the opposition by a total score of 22-0, Coach Larabee said the team can never be too satisfied and must continue to strive for improvement.

"We can never be satisfied, because every player on our team can get better in every area," Coach Larabee said. "Whether it's strength training, conditioning, speed, agility or explosion. For our hitters, continue to improve our quality of at bats. We talk about being aggressive at the plate. Defensively, continue to play a high level of catch."

The Razorbacks continue their fall schedule by travelling to Norman, Okla., to face defending national champion Oklahoma on Sunday. First pitch at the OU Softball Complex is schedule for 1 p.m.
