Arkansas’ win moves Hogs closer to two-round bye for SEC Tournament

The Arkansas softball team started the final weekend of the regular season on a high note Friday.

The Razorbacks had no trouble with last-place Missouri, taking the opener of the three-game set to close the SEC season, 9-0, in five innings.

Arkansas’ win kept the Hogs pace and tied for third in the league standings alongside Auburn and one game ahead of fifth-place Alabama. The top four teams in the final standings earn a two-round bye in next week’s SEC Tournament, which will be held at Bogle Park in Fayetteville.

Against Mizzou, the No. 12 Hogs jumped early and often.

Arkansas scored runs in every inning but the fourth. Lauren Camenzind had the best day at the plate, going 3 for 3 with a double, two RBI and two runs. Second baseman Kristina Foreman went 2 for 2 with a walk, a double, three RBI and two runs, as well.

Chenise Delce never had trouble pithing, either. She won her 20th game of the season by limiting Missouri to two hits and two walks while striking out five.

Arkansas will look to take the series in Columbia at 4 p.m. Saturday.
