FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arguably the best season in Arkansas softball history came to an end Saturday in a 4-1 loss to Arizona. For the first time in program history, the Razorbacks hosted a NCAA Super Regional. But the team failed to win a game this weekend at Bogle Park, falling in two straight games.
Autumn Storms started great in the circle, taking a perfect game into the fifth. In the top half of the inning, Braxton Burnside doubled in a run, and Arkansas went up 1-0, their first-ever lead in a Super Regional.
That would be short-lived. A two-run homer gave Arizona a lead in the bottom of the fifth, and the Wildcats added two more in the sixth to make it 4-1. That was all she wrote, and the Arkansas season ends two wins shy of Oklahoma City.
