Pigs suffer Game 2 Setback vs. Crimson Tide

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – No. No. 14 Arkansas fell 5-1 to No. 15 Alabama in game two Saturday at Bogle Park. A single-game attendance record of 3,900 fans packed into Bogle Park.

The loss forces a rubber match on Sunday at 1:00 PM CT on ESPNU with Roy Philpott (play-by-play) and Madison Shipman (analyst) on the call from Bogle Park. Arkansas is chasing its fourth straight win in the series and back-to-back victories over the Crimson Tide for the first time in program history.

The Hogs move to 31-12 overall and 10-7 in league play this season.

Arkansas claimed an early 1-0 lead in the first inning after Reagan Johnson scored from third on a wild pitch. The Razorbacks held the lead until the Crimson Tide scored five unanswered points in the fifth for a 5-1 lead. Four of Alabama’s five points were unearned.

Reagan Johnson and Kennedy Miller each put together multi-hit performances to round out the Razorback offense. After a 2-for-4 performance, Johnson scored her team-leading 18th multi-hit game this season. Miller put together her 13th multi-hit attempt after going 2-for-3 at the dish. Raigan Kramer and Lauren Camenzind each added one hit.

LHP Robyn Herron made her 15th start of the season and effectively turned 4.2 frames, giving up just one earned run on four hits while striking out seven. The left-hander erased the first 10 batters she faced and didn’t allow a baserunner until Alabama singled into right field with one out in the top of the fourth inning. The Tampa native was especially dominant during the second and third frames as she knocked off five in a row. Herron also didn’t walk vs. the Crimson Tide.

In the top of the fifth, back-to-back base knocks by Alabama put runners on the corners with no one out. An Arkansas fielding error then allowed the Crimson Tide to tie the game at 1-1. A one-out single through the left side resulted in an unearned run and gave Alabama a 2-1 lead. With two outs, Morgan Leinstock took over in the circle and gave up a three-run home run. Reis Beuerlein kept Alabama off the board in 2.1 innings of relief and limited the Crimson Tide to just two hits. Beuerlein struckout and walked a batter.
