• Longhorns take first two games in Arkansas

    After defeating Arkansas, 87, in extra innings Saturday, the Longhorns drifted past the Razorbacks, 112, in the second game of the three-game series Sunday.

    Senior Gabby Smith showed no sign of soreness from the mound as she struck out three and allowed just one earned run over six innings.

    “The biggest thing about Gabby is she can do so many things for us,” head coach Connie Clark said in a media availability Thursday. “For us right now, she is probably the single most key to our success as we go down the stretch.”

    Texas' offense has been solid in the first two games of the series with a .350 overall batting average and 19 runs. The Longhorns tallied 13 hits alone Sunday.

    Texas plays Arkansas for the final game of the sequence at 8 p.m. Monday.
