Arkansas pitcher Kimmy Beasley turned left, bent both knees and lowered, then raised herself back up and pitched.

She did that for seven innings, dominating from the circle.


She threw 98 total pitches, 67 of which were strikes.

Beasley gave up just six hits and one earned run in Arkansas 5-1 victory against Fordham in the opening round of the NCAA Regional in Norman.

Razorback centerfielder Stephanie Canfield had the best day, going 3-for-3 with one RBI .

CHAMBERLAIN TIED FOR SECOND

In her second at-bat during the first inning, lead-off hitter Lauren Chamberlain ripped a three-run homer to left center field.

The shot gave Chamberlain 56 career home runs (26 this season) and tied her for second place for career homers in program history. Chamberlain is tied with Amber Flores.

SHULTS ROBBED AT WALL

Jessica Shults owns the record for most home runs in program history with 61.

In the first game of postseason play, Oklahoma fans in the outfield stood with their arms in the air in triumph as they watched the ball rise and fly toward them. Then Shults was robbed of a home run. Marist's center fielder hit the back wall near the 225 mark as she snagged the ball.

Shults was also robbed of a home run in the final game of the regular season when Oklahoma State's right fielder reached just above the outfield wall and gloved it.
