An anticipated matchup of top-10 teams turned into a dominant sweep for Razorback softball in Gainesville.

No. 6 Arkansas defeated No. 9 Florida 2-0 on Sunday in Gainesville, completing the road sweep over the Gators and continuing the Hogs streak of winning every SEC series so far this season.

The Razorbacks clinched their first series win over Florida since 2000 with a 5-4 on Saturday. They followed that up with a exclamation mark on the series Sunday.

Chenise Delce shined in a complete game shutout, striking out eight batters while only allowing two hits. Across the weekend, she only allowed one earned run in 15 innings pitched.

The Hogs' bats tallied only four hits, but the first one got them on the board.

Danielle Gibson opened the scoring in the top of the second, sending a solo home run down the right field line.

The only other run in the game came on a throwing error from a Linnie Malkin bases-loaded grounder, which allowed KB Sides.to score the unearned run from third.

Arkansas sits in first place atop the SEC standings at 14-4 with just six conference games left in the regular season. The Hogs' .778 conference win percentage is the only one in the SEC above .700, with second place Alabama at .650 (13-7).
