By David Goforth’s own admission, he has some work to do to become the closer he knows he can be. Entering this weekend’s series against No. 8 Florida, Goforth is the not-so-proud owner of an 8.49 ERA. That’s not to say Goforth hasn’t had some solid outings, like against Saint Louis on Wednesday where after struggling early in the eighth inning he came back out and struck out the side in the ninth.
But at Kentucky last weekend, the sophomore right-hander was shelled for 10 earned runs in just 1.1 innings. (March 26, 2010, Page 6A)
OLE MISS BASEBALL — With the loss of Jake Morgan in the fall to injury, it’s David Goforth’s turn to step up and assume the role of closer for the Ole Miss Rebels. The sophomore from Neshoba Central was Morgan’s setup man last season and posted a 1-1 record with three saves in 25 appearances. With Goforth’s move to closer, redshirt freshman Brett Huber is slated as Ole Miss’ setup guy. (February 18, 2010, Page 10)
OLE MISS BASEBALL — After a busy season in 2009 that saw Drew Pomeranz not only anchor Ole Miss’ pitching staff but also Team USA’s, the 6-foot-5 junior is back and ready to resume his role with the Rebels. In addition to Pomeranz, the coaching staff named Aaron Barrett and Trent Rothlin as the other weekend starters. (February 17, 2010, Page 8)
