Miller’s RBI Double Lifts Arkansas over South Dakota State

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Freshman catcher Kennedy Miller’s two-out, RBI double in the bottom of the fourth was the difference-maker in No. 16 Arkansas’ 4-3 win vs. South Dakota State Thursday at Bogle Park.

Opening the Wooo Pig Classic with a victory, Arkansas improves to 14-3 overall and 6-1 at home. The Razorbacks stretch their win streak to four games. Arkansas also moves to 3-0 all-time against the Jackrabbits.

Sophomore LHP Hannah Camenzind (4-0) earned the win after shutting the door on the Jackrabbits and pitching the final 3.1 frames. Entering the circle in top of the fourth with two outs and runners at first and second, Camenzind forced a ground out to first to refrain South Dakota State from scoring. The southpaw retired all 10 batters she faced while punching out one. Camenzind also helped her own cause and recorded a base knock to left field in the fifth.

Arkansas was powered offensively by Bri Ellis, who went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in the bottom of the first. Hannah Gammill paced the Hogs with two base knocks. Miller reached base twice via HBP and RBI double. Cylie Halvorson plated an Arkansas run in the first on a sacrifice fly.

South Dakota State scored on a solo home run to take a 1-0 lead in the top of the first. Arkansas responded with a three-run bottom of the first to grasp onto the lead. Ellis smoked a two-run home run to center for a 2-1 advantage. Then, Halvorson’s sacrifice fly to deep right center plated Nia Carter from third for a 3-1 lead.

The Jackrabbits answered back in the top of the second with their second solo home run of the game to trim Arkansas’ lead to 3-2.

After the two teams exchanged zeroes in the third, South Dakota State evened it at 3-3 in the fourth on an RBI single through the left side.

With two outs in the bottom of the fourth, Rylin Hedgecock jacked a double down the left field line to place a runner in scoring position. Down in a 1-2 count, Kennedy Miller’s clutch RBI double to left center pushed Hedgecock across home for a 4-3 edge.
