Storms’ pitching, Green’s homers even series with Tide

Autumn Storms threw a two-hit shutout, Kayla Green homered twice as the Hogs defeat Alabama to even series between two Top 10 teams.

Autumn Storms threw a complete game two hit shutout and Kayla Green homered twice as No. 8 Arkansas defeated No. 3 Alabama 4-0 to even the series at Bogle Park on Saturday afternoon.

All four of the Razorbacks’ (33-4, 13-1 SEC) runs came via the long ball.

The win improved the Hogs to 33-4 overall (13-1 SEC).

How it happened

Infielder Braxton Burnside’s solo home run to left, her 21st of the season, in the third inning, giving the Hogs a 1-0 lead.

Green hit the first of her two bombs in the fourth, extending the lead to 2-0, and provided even more insurance with a two-run shot in the sixth.

Green hit four home runs this week, which included her first career two home run game on Tuesday against Missouri State.

Storms (6-0) was electric inside the circle and had complete control of the Alabama lineup. She fanned a season-high 10 hitters, the most times the Crimson Tide have struck out this year.

Both hits Storms allowed were singles and Alabama only put two runners on in the same inning in the seventh on a hit by pitch and an error.

Lexi Kilfoyl (11-3) went 5.0 innings surrendering four runs on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts.

Arkansas outhit Alabama, 7-2, with both Green and McEwen recording a two-hit game. Storms has thrown two straight complete game shutouts in her starts after defeating No. 25 Auburn, 3-0, last weekend.

The rubber match of the series is set for 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon on SEC Network+.
