Arkansas softball cruises past Missouri State

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – With the help of four home runs, the University of Arkansas softball team opened its home schedule Wednesday evening with a 9-0 win over Missouri State. In the circle, freshman Mary Haff had seven strikeouts and allowed just one hit to secure her sixth win of the season. All nine of the Razorbacks’ runs came courtesy of the long ball including the game-ending shot by Haydi Bugarin in the bottom of the fifth.

Arkansas is now 10-1 on the season and Wednesday’s game marked the fifth run-rule victory of the season. The Razorbacks also go home runs from Loren Kryzsko, Tori Cooper and Hannah McEwen.

“We’re going to get more contributions and we’re going to see a little more balance one through nine,” head coach Courtney Deifel said. “It doesn’t really matter who we put in there. They’re producing and making the most of the opportunity. It’s a fun team to watch right now.”
