Against the Ole Miss Rebels, Arkansas pitcher Mike Bolsinger pitched like the Friday night ace he had been up until about four weeks ago.
The right-hander allowed no runs on two hits and three walks while striking out a career-high 11 batters in 8.0 innings to lead the Razorbacks to a lopsided 7-0 win on Sunday at Oxford-University Stadium.
Arkansas scored one run in the fourth off of an RBI single by Tim Carver, then two more in the next frame courtesy of a Andy Wilkins 2-run homer and that was all the offense they needed.
Meanwhile, Ole Miss’ offense couldn’t find a way to get on base. As Ole Miss center fielder Tim Ferguson put it after the game, Bolsinger’s slider kept the Rebel batters off balance.
Catcher Taylor Hightower and designated hitter Tanner Mathis accounted for Ole Miss’ only two hits of the game.
In the sixth inning, leadoff hitter Collin Kuhn scored Carver from first on a sacrifice fly, and in the seventh inning Arkansas scored three runs on two singles and a ground out to complete its scoring.
Ole Miss starter David Goforth earned the loss for Ole Miss, surrendering six runs (five earned) on eight hits and four walks in 6.0 innings. He also struck out four batters.
Ole Miss will return to the diamond on Wednesday, traveling to Jonesboro, Ark., to face Arkansas State at 6:30 p.m. in its final non-conference game of the season. (May 9, 2010)
