FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Dominic Ficociello had four RBIs to lead Arkansas past Mississippi 11-3 in Southeastern Conference play.
The Razorbacks (28-12, 9-9 SEC) took a 7-0 lead Sunday, thanks in part to Ficociello's run-scoring doubles in the first and second innings. Mississippi (27-13, 9-9) rallied in the third on Matt Snyder's RBI single and scored two more times in the seventh and ninth innings, but the Razorbacks had already put the game out reach.
Ficociello went 3-for-4 and Jake Wise had two RBIs for Arkansas. Snyder and Sikes Orvis each had an RBI for the Rebels.
Cade Lynch (2-1) won the game, allowing three hits and one run in three innings of relief for Arkansas.
Starter Sam Smith suffered the loss, allowing six hits and five runs in one inning for Mississippi.
