FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas softball team fell behind early and was defeated in game two of a three-game set against No. 20/20 Missouri, falling 11-1 in five innings Saturday afternoon at Bogle Park. The Razorbacks (15-29, 1-16 SEC) and Tigers (30-10, 10-7) will wrap up their series Sunday at 1 p.m. on SEC Network+. Sunday is Arkansas’ annual Strike Out Breast Cancer game and the first 150 fans will receive a free pink Arkansas Softball t-shirt.
For the second consecutive outing, Arkansas had to play from behind after giving up two runs in the Tigers’ first inning and then seven runs in the second.
The Razorbacks got on the board in the bottom of the third when senior Devon Wallace connected for her team-leading sixth home run of the season on a solo drive to left center. Wallace already owns Arkansas’ career home run record and continues to add more to her tally, as Saturday’s smash was her 46th career homer.
Arkansas started up a two-out rally in the bottom of the fifth when three consecutive batters reached to load up the bases but a strikeout ended the rally and the game.
