Arkansas Suffers Setback Against South Dakota State

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Despite another dominant offensive showing from freshman catcher Kennedy Miller, No. 16 Arkansas was handed a 7-3 loss to South Dakota State Saturday at Bogle Park.

Arkansas combined for nine hits, but the Razorbacks were unable to scrap together more runs as they left 11 on base vs. the Jackrabbits.

Arkansas came out swinging in the bottom of the first thanks to Miller’s three-run bomb to left. It was her second straight plate appearance with a home run , dating back to Friday’s win vs. Florida Atlantic. Miller exploded against South Dakota State, finishing 2-for-4 with a team-high three RBIs.

In the top of the second, a bases-loaded walk, bloop single to shallow center and a sacrifice fly allowed South Dakota State to even it at 3-3. The Jackrabbits put up a three-spot in the fourth on an RBI single and a two-run homer to capture a 6-3 lead. South Dakota State tacked on its final run in the seventh on an RBI single up the middle.

The Hogs utilized four arms in the circle. Sophomore LHP Hannah Camenzind made the start and spun 1.1 frames, surrendering three earned runs on two hits and four walks. Sophomore RHP Nikki McGaffin faced one batter in the second before sophomore LHP Robyn Herron took reigns in the circle. Herron suffered the loss as she gave up three runs on three hits and struck out for across 2.2 innings. Redshirt senior Morgan Leinstock threw 3.0 innings in relief, limiting the Jackrabbits to one run on two hits and fanning four.

Joining Miller in the hits column, Hannah Camenzind filed her third multi-hit outing of the season after going 2-for-4. Reagan Johnson, Nia Carter and Cylie Halvorson peppered one hit apiece. Johnson increased to seven stolen bases on the season after stealing second in the fourth.
