Pregame Notes

Head coach Dave Van Horn has made a couple of changes to his lineup. Matt Goodheart is still batting leadoff, but he is playing left field. That has allowed Charlie Welch to start at designated hitter. Freshman Ethan Bates will be making his second straight start.

Full lineups are listed below.

T-1st: Arkansas 2, Ole Miss 0

After a one-out double by Cayden Wallace, Cullen Smith followed with a two-run home run to start the scoring.

B-5th: Ole Miss 2, Arkansas 2

With the bases loaded, Jacob Gonzalez ties the game with a two-run double.

T-6th: Arkansas 3, Ole Miss 2

Arkansas turns Charlie Welch's leadoff walk into a run on a two-out RBI double by Jalen Battles.
