COLUMBIA - No. 24 Mizzou Softball lost to No. 25 Arkansas, 6-5, on Saturday afternoon to even the weekend series at one game apiece.

Arkansas (23-14, 3-11) scored twice in the second inning to take an early lead on RBI singles from redshirt senior Nicole Schroeder and junior Madison Yannetti, but Mizzou countered in the bottom half of the inning with a solo home run from senior Chloe Rathburn to cut the Razorback lead to 2-1.

Mizzou (21-15, 4-6 SEC) took the lead for the first time in the third inning. Freshmen Cayla Kessinger and Braxton Burnside each contributed RBI singles in the frame.

The Razorbacks responded with a equalizing solo home run from sophomore Haydi Bugarin in the fourth.

Tied at three in the bottom of the sixth, Tiger senior Natalie Fleming drove in two with a base hit to give Mizzou a 5-3 edge, needing only three outs to win the game and the series.

Freshman pitcher Parker Conrad, looking to close the game and earn a win, gave up a run and was pulled with one out in the seventh for senior Cheyenne Baxter (9-3), the winning pitcher from Friday's contest.

Baxter walked the first two batters she faced and included a wild pitch. The next razorback batter, redshirt junior Loren Krzysko, hit a single that drove in two and gave Arkansas a 6-5 advantage.

Mizzou was retired in order in the bottom of the seventh.

The Tigers and Razorbacks will meet on Sunday, April 9, to decide the series.
