Game 1
Arkansas clinched its fifth consecutive win against SEMO behind a gem from redshirt senior RHP Morgan Leinstock.

The righthander did not allow a base runner in three different innings Friday afternoon.

Combining for nine hits, Arkansas took advantage of a four-run fifth inning to put pressure on SEMO after scoring just one run through the game’s first four frames.

Seniors Cylie Halvorson (2-for-3, 1 HR, 1, R 1 RBI) and Hannah Gammill (1-for-3, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI) each recorded solo home runs. Bri Ellis drove in two runs on an RBI single to left in the fifth. Reagan Johnson also had a standout performance at the plate after going 1-for-3 with an RBI double to right center in the fifth.
