The Razorbacks were swinging hot bats in the first inning, stringing together six consecutive hits to take an early 4-0 lead. Eric Fisher drove in the first two runs of the game with a single through the right side, and Tyler Spoon and followed and made it 3-0 with a base knock to left field.
Blake Baxendale capped the big inning with a single up the middle as Arkansas batted around for the eighth time on the year and the second time in the last three games.
The Rebels would fight back in their half of the first inning however, scoring three runs to cut the Arkansas lead to just a run, before scoring three more runs in the fourth frame to take the lead. Ole Miss added a single run in the fifth to complete the comeback and clinch the series.
The bullpen posted another solid outing for the Razorbacks, working 4.1 innings and allowing just two hits and one run, while striking out one. Zach Jackson, Dominic Taccolini, Jackson Lowery and Colin Poché all saw action in relief.
Fisher recorded his second three-hit game of the year and eighth multi-RBI game of the season to pace the offense, while Spoon and Wernes each chipped in a pair of hits.
The series finale is set for Sunday afternoon at Swayze Field with first pitch slated for 1:30 p.m. The Contest will be televised on CSS and ESPN3.
