Near No-No

Offensive Fireworks
Arkansas scored a season-high 15 runs behind another season high of 20 hits in the team’s back-and-forth win over Buffalo (March 4) at Bogle Park. Redshirt junior Nicole Schroeder provided the final blow with a walk-off two-run shot in the bottom of the seventh inning. It was the Razorbacks’ eighth game of the season with at least seven runs, and fourth with 10+ runs.

Here Comes the Big Inning
The Razorbacks’ offense has generated four or more runs in nine separate innings this year. Three of those innings came in the team’s 15-14 win over Buffalo (March 4). For the fourth time, Arkansas scored five runs in one inning during the win over the Bulls.

Manufacturing Runs
