What hasn’t been in question? Who is taking the place of top draft pick Drew Pomeranz as the Friday night starter.

Just under one year ago, the Ole Miss baseball team routed Arkansas-Pine Bluff 22-2. On Tuesday, the Golden Lions didn’t fare much better, falling to No. 20 Ole Miss 17-1 at Oxford-University Stadium.
