Five-Inning Win Caps Home Weekend Sweep

FAYETTEVILLE – The University of Arkansas softball team completed its weekend sweep with a 10-0 win over UMKC Sunday afternoon at Bogle Park. The Razorbacks scored seven runs in the first on their way to the run-rule victory. Kasey Fagan and Shelby Hiers each hit a three-run home run while Grace Moll and Sydney Wright combined for a two-hit shutout. Arkansas has now won five straight games and improves to 7-3 on the year.

With a run already scored and runners on first and second, Fagan launched a three-run shot to left field that pushed the Razorbacks’ lead to 4-0. The home run was her third of the year and she leads the team with 15 RBI. Clarisa Navarro and Claire Clark followed with back-to-back singles and Hiers capped the inning with another three-run home run to left field for the first hit of her Arkansas career.

Moll faced the minimum through three innings of work and retired eight in a row after allowing a lead-off single. That runner was erased on a steal attempt with a strike down to second base from Hiers. Wright, who also collected her first career hit Sunday, recorded two scoreless innings in relief to reserve the shutout.

The Razorbacks added to their lead with three more runs in the second by way of two bases-loaded walks to Navarro and Hiers and a wild pitch that allowed Fagan to score from third. Arkansas has now scored at least 10 runs in four games this season and has plated at least eight runs in each of its seven wins.
