Aloy’s decisive home run leads Razorbacks to victory in series opener against Rebels.

Wehiwa Aloy’s decisive three-run homer in the sixth inning propelled top-ranked Arkansas to a 5-2 victory over Ole Miss in the opening game of their series at Baum-Walker Stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

This win marks Arkansas’ best start ever in Southeastern Conference (SEC) play at 9-1, a feat unparalleled in the program’s history since joining the SEC in 1992.

Furthermore, Arkansas extended their home winning streak to a record-setting 19 games. Hagen Smith delivered another stellar performance, pitching six innings with 11 strikeouts, maintaining his unbeaten record this season at 6-0.

Despite Ole Miss initially taking the lead with two runs in the third inning, Smith’s resilience kept Arkansas in contention.

Jared Sprague-Lott’s RBI groundout and later a solo home run contributed to a decisive four-run sixth inning, securing the win. Will McEntire and Stone Hewlett provided solid relief pitching to seal the victory.

Arkansas aims to continue their dominance against Ole Miss in the upcoming game on Friday night.
