A-State Baseball Falls to No. 1 Ole Miss

February 24, 2021

OXFORD, MIss. (2/24/21)  – OXFORD, Miss. (2/24/21) –  Liam Hicks scored the lone run for the Red Wolves as the Arkansas State baseball team (0-1) dropped its season-opening contest to No.1 Ole Miss 12-1, Wednesday evening at Swayze field.
In the top of the fourth, Toronto, Ontario native Hicks sent a leadoff home run to left-center, giving A-State its first run and hit of the night. Hicks moved his on-base streak to seventeen games, dating back to the 2020 campaign. 
Hicks finished the night with two hits, a home run, and a double as Sky-Lar Culver registered a hit and a double.
The Red Wolves threw eight different pitchers combining for seven strikeouts. Jake Algee and Will Gilmer each tossed a scoreless inning in their A-State debuts. Phillip Bryant tossed two-thirds innings, striking out two. 
Jack Jumper (0-1) made his first career start, earning a strikeout while giving up a hit and a run.
Ole Miss (4-0) struck first in the bottom of the first after Kevin Graham scored on a fielding error. The Rebels added a three spot in the third, fifth, and eighth inning, building a 12-1 advantage. Four of the Rebels’ runs were unearned.
