Razorback softball was one inning away from shutting out an entire slate of NCAA Regionals opponents. Is that good? That sounds good. Now they're headed to the NCAA Super Regionals.

The box score showed this team living up to its Bogle Bombers nickname, scoring 19 runs and only allowing three in three games. Who were the MVPs of each game?

Game 1️⃣:Aly Manzo finished the series opener against Manhattan tied for the team lead with two RBIs, including the first of the game. With the game ending in an 8-0 win for the Hogs, it's all they'd need on the day.

Game 2️⃣:Linnie Malkin and her two-run blast put the Hogs ahead of South Dakota State. With the team blanking the Jackrabbits for a 4-0 win, it was a lead they wouldn't surrender.

Game 3️⃣:Mary Haff could go anywhere on this list, but let's save the best for last. She pitched all but one inning through Games 1 and 2 and came in as relief in the second inning of Game 3. You wouldn't know it with how she was in the circle, putting in 6.0 innings of work and not allowing a single earned run on 24 batters faced as the Razorbacks won 7-3 against Stanford.

The Razorbacks will play Arizona in the NCAA Super Regionals on Friday night at 6:00pm CT. You can watch the game on ESPNU.
