On Sunday, Razorback right-hander Mike Bolsinger led the charge in Arkansas’ 7-0 victory over Ole Miss.
Two days after allowing two runs in 1.1 innings of relief work, Bolsinger — who had began the year as Arkansas’ Friday night starter — was able to keep the Ole Miss bats at bay, surrendering just two hits in 8.0 innings while striking out a career-high 11 batters. (May 10, 2010, Page 1B)
The senior from Evansville, Ind., looked like the dominant right-hander Rebel fans became accustomed to earlier in the season.
After allowing 10 combined runs in his previous two outings against LSU and Mississippi State, Barrett stifled Razorback batters, allowing one run in 8.0 innings of work. (May 10, 2010, Page 4B)

It’s far from lonely atop the Southeastern Conference Western Division standings for the No. 13 Ole Miss baseball team.
In fact, the team they share first with, No. 14 Arkansas, will be in Oxford this weekend looking to not only separate itself from the Rebels, but also get even for last season.
A year ago, the Rebels traveled to Arkansas and swept the Razorbacks to earn a share of the SEC Title with LSU.
This weekend, expect the Razorbacks (35-10 overall, 14-7 SEC) to be looking for payback. (May 7, 2010, Page 6A)

One week ago Ole Miss pitcher Drew Pomeranz struggled mightily in his Friday night start against LSU, walking a career-high nine batters.
By his own admission, something was off but he just wasn’t sure what that something was.
Then, during the second inning of the Rebels’ 4-2 win at Mississippi State on Friday he realized what was wrong. (May 3, 2010, Page 2B)
STARKVILLE — For the second game in a row Rebel runs and Mississippi State fielding errors were not in short supply, as the Rebels capitalized on 15 hits and four errors to claim the 19-11 win at MSU’s Dudy Noble Field.
