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.

OLE MISS BASEBALL — At times during Ole Miss’ first seven games, freshman infielder Alex Yarbrough seemed like he couldn’t buy a hit.
