Florida run-rules Razorbacks to clinch series with 8-0 victory

Box Score

FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas fell behind early and never could catch up with Florida in an 8-0 loss to Florida on Saturday afternoon.

The Razorbacks were held to two hits by Florida starter Delaney Gourley, singles by Shelby Hiers and Ashley Diaz.

With Saturday’s result, Arkansas is now 22-11 overall and 2-9 in Southeastern Conference play.

Saturday’s game was played in front of 1,021 fans, the 10th-largest crowd at Bogle Park.

With her team facing the wrong side of a run-rule decision, Ashley Diaz stroked a one-out single to left field in the fifth inning to get a would-be rally started.

The Razorbacks got the benefit of a fielding error at third base to have runners on first and second with two outs.

However, in the next at-bat Madison Yannetti lined out to the shortstop to end the game.

Diaz has hit safely in four straight and five of the last six.

Florida (32-2, 9-1 SEC) struck early with three runs — two earned — off freshman starter Autumn Storms in the first inning.

The visitors pushed their lead to 4-0 off with an RBI fielder’s choice in the third, the final inning of the day for Storms. Katie Warrick pitched the final two innings of the game.

After a 10-pitch fourth by Warrick, the Gators put the game out of reach with a four-run fifth, capped by a three-run shot to center by Jordan Roberts.
