TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – The University of Arkansas softball team lost its series opener with No. 4 Alabama, 8-0, Friday night at Rhoads Stadium. Jessica Harrison and Jennifer Rambo each had hits in the game to pace the Razorback offense but the team was held to three base runners. With the loss, Arkansas drops to 24-15 overall and 2-8 in conference play.

With the threat of inclement weather in the forecast, Arkansas and Alabama will play a doubleheader Saturday with game one of the twin bill scheduled for 1 p.m. (CT). This will mark the Razorbacks’ third doubleheader in four weekends of SEC play. Friday's ’game was played in front of a national television audience on ESPNU.

Rambo was the Razorbacks’ first base runner with a one-out single in the third inning off Alabama starter Jaclyn Traina. She was erased on an inning-ending double play on a hard-hit ball off the bat of Chloe Oprzedek. With two outs against the offense in the fifth inning, Harrison lined a double into the gap in right center to give Arkansas its first runner in scoring position.

For a second-consecutive inning, the Razorbacks had a runner on second base after a two-out walk to Devon Wallace and a wild pitch that allowed the lead-off hitter to advance. With the walk, Wallace increased her SEC-leading total to 44 which pushed her career total to 176, eight shy of tying the all-time conference record. She has now reached base safely in 13-straight games.

Sydney Wright made her second start of the SEC season, allowing four runs on seven hits in three innings in the circle. She worked a 1-2-3 inning in the first before the Crimson Tide opened the scoring with three runs in the second frame. Wright took the loss in the game and falls to 4-4 during her freshman campaign.
