Malkin homers to give Deifel 200th victory

FAYETTEVILLE — No. 15 Arkansas didn’t have much offense Friday night, but Mary Haff and Autumn Storms made sure it was enough to give Razorbacks softball Coach Courtney Deifel her 200th career victory.

Linnie Malkin broke up Annie Willis’ no-hitter with a two-out, two-run home run in the fourth inning and Arkansas pitchers made it stand up for a 2-0 victory over Mississippi State at Bogle Park.

Arkansas (26-3, 7-0 SEC) continued its best start in conference play, but Deifel didn’t even know about the milestone victory until assistant coach Matt Meuchel told her after the game.
