Arkansas sophomore Danielle Gibson became the second person in NCAA history to hit for the home run cycle on Saturday. It took her just four innings to hit her four home runs.
Not surprising is the game ended early due to the mercy rule. The Razorbacks beat SIU-Edwardsville 15-3 in five innings.
? HOME RUN CYCLE ?
Not only did @RazorbackSB Danielle Gibson tie a NCAA record with 4 home runs in a game, her home run cycle is only the second accounted for in DI history – and she’s the ONLY to do it in four innings! #NCAASoftball pic.twitter.com/LuC6fXbIlc

This is impressive, but clearly the pitching staff on the other side isn’t on the same level as Arkansas and was serving up batting practice.
Was there ever a thought to maybe pitch around Gibson in this game? There should have been, because her home run swing was clearly working during that game.
