Those who have been clamoring for David Goforth to get a stab at starting for the No. 11 Ole Miss Rebels baseball team are about to get their wish.
For the first time since he was a flame-thrower at Neshoba Central High in Philadelphia, Goforth will be a starting pitcher — even if it is on a trial basis.
Prior to Monday’s practice at Oxford-University Stadium, Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco confirmed that the sophomore right-hander will get his shot at the starting role tonight against Mississippi State (14-10 overall, 2-4 SEC) tonight in Pearl in the annual Governor’s Cup game at 6:30.

And the streak continues. In short, Sundays have been unkind to the Ole Miss Rebels baseball squad. For the fourth Sunday in a row, the No. 17 Rebels have been unable to not only piece together timely hits but also find pitching that gives them a chance to take the game.
One game after the Rebels’ offense exploded for 15 runs, the No. 8 Gators returned the favor, routing the Rebels 13-1 to avoid a sweep at Oxford-University Stadium. (March 29, 2010, Page 1B)
One game after Ole Miss plated 15 runs on 19 hits, the Florida Gators returned the favor by routing the Rebels 13-1.

Friday night’s game between the No. 8 Florida Gators and No. 17 Ole Miss Rebels lived up to the hype.
In what turned out to be a pitcher’s duel, Ole Miss junior left-hander Drew Pomeranz pitched the Rebels to a 3-2 victory.

The Ole Miss Rebels are hoping to have better luck than in-state rival Mississippi State this weekend when they host the No. 8 Florida Gators for a three-game series beginning tonight at 6:30. Last weekend, the Gators swept MSU in Gainesville, Fla., outscoring the Bulldogs 16-7. Florida is currently riding a six-game winning streak after rallying to beat Florida Gulf Coast 13-8 on Wednesday. (March 26, 2010, Page 6A)
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)
Even without sluggers Matt Smith and Matt Snyder, the No. 17 Ole Miss baseball team was able to score double-digit runs for the second-straight night on Wednesday, knocking off the Saint Louis Billikens 14-5 at Oxford-University Stadium. (March 25, 2010, Page 6)
