BASEBALL: Hogs drop SEC opener to Ole Miss

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Preston Overbey homered and drove in four runs, while Ole Miss starter Bobby Wahl worked seven strong innings as the eighth-ranked Rebels downed No. 15 Arkansas 7-1 in the Southeastern Conference opener on Friday night at Baum Stadium.

Arkansas drops to 13-6, 0-1 in league play, while Ole Miss improves to 19-1, 1-0 in conference.

Wahl (5-0) earned the win on the mound, striking out five and allowing one run on three hits in seven innings of work. Arkansas starter Trey Killian (2-2) took the loss, giving up seven runs on five hits in two innings.

The Razorback relief combo of Landon Simpson and Thomas Altimont combined to toss six shutout innings. Simpson struck out four in five scoreless frames, while Altimont had a strikeout in his one shutout inning.

Offensively, Jacob Mahan, Tyler Spoon and Matt Vinson each had one hit for the Razorbacks. Spoon also added a RBI and extended his reached base streak to 19 straight games.

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. A walk to Will Jamison loaded the bases with two out for Overbey, who sent a 2-1 pitch over the wall in left field for a grand slam to give the Rebels a 4-1 lead.
