Hot bats lead Arkansas over Princeton in Fayetteville Regional
Arkansas rolled over Princeton 11-0 on Friday in the Fayetteville Regional of the NCAA Tournament. The Razorbacks were feeling it on offense.
The game was called in 5 innings, thanks to how explosive the Hogs’ offense was. Hannah McEwen, Taylor Ellsworth, and Danielle Gibson all had RBIs in the bottom of the 1st and 3rd innings to make it 3-0 Arkansas.
Then came the 4th inning. Ellsworth got walked with the bases loaded to start things off, then Gibson smoked a ball deep to right center for a grand slam to make it 8-0. Marlene Friedman got hit by a pitch in the same inning, which scored a run as well. The last 2 runs of the game came from KB Sides getting hit by a pitch, and another RBI from McEwen.
