On Saturday, Arkansas (27-16) scored 3 times in the 11th inning for a 4-1 victory at Missouri (24-5, 9-4) to pull even in the weekend series.

Chelsea Thomas (15-4, 1.37 ERA) and Kimmy Beasley (6-6, 2.42 ERA) were locked in a scoreless tie until in the top of the 7th inning when the Razorbacks pushed across an unearned run with the aide of a throwing error by Missouri 3B Angie Randazzo.

With one out in the bottom of the 7th, Kelsea Roth hit a line drive over the left field wall, her 12th HR of the season, to send the game into extras.

Devon Wallace (.406 BA) doubled off the right field wall to lead off the 11th inning. A series of moves Coach Earleywine had made earlier in the game came back on him as he ended up with Kayla Kingsley in right field late in the game. She failed to run down Wallace's fly ball, then she misplayed a base hit off the bat of Chloe Oprzedek, which allowed 2 unearned runs to score behind Wallace.

Beasley, a sophomore left-hander, out-pitched the two-time All-American, allowing just 1 run on 4 hits, while striking out 12, in 11 innings pitched.
