Arkansas hasn’t struggled to score runs in the 2014 season and that trend continued Friday night.
The Razorbacks scored eight first inning runs and then plated one in the bottom of the seventh to edge South Carolina 11-10 at Bogle Park.
Stephanie Canfield’s infield single in the seventh drove home the winning run as the Razorbacks improved to 3-10 in the SEC.
Arkansas (25-18) has now scored 315 runs on the season, breaking the school’s old record for most runs in a season.
“Offense has not been a problem this year,” Arkansas coach Mike Larabee said. “This week we were number four in the nation in runs scored per game. We can swing the bats and generate runs. Very proud and we worked very hard at our offensive part of our game.”
Devin Wallace’s grand slam in the first inning was the highlight of an eight inning frame that saw Arkansas record just two hits.
“There is so much hard work that has gone into this season,” senior Jennifer Rambo said. “We have such a talented team and honestly that doesn’t surprise me at all with how well our lineup is just stacked. I know any girl can get it done.”
Arkansas continues the series against South Carolina on Saturday with first pitch scheduled for 1 p.m.
