Overbey hit his first career grand slam and went 2-for-4 at the plate with four RBI. Sikes Orvis also homered for the Rebesls, while Will Allen and Stuart Turner each added two hits.

    

The Razorbacks struck first with a run in the bottom of the first. Mahan led off the inning with a double down the left field line and advanced to third on a ground out to second by Dominic Ficociello. Spoon then lined a single to center to score Mahan with the game’s first run.

Ole Miss answered with four runs in the top of the second. With one out, Andrew Mistone singled and advanced to third on a single to right by Allen.
