The Diamond Hogs are expected to turn to an in-state Razorback to start opening day at Baum Stadium. Righthander Blaine Knight, a starter in seven games last season, will look to shut down the Miami of Ohio Redhawks from the MAC. Knight posted a 2.98 ERA as a Freshman, recording a 1.78 ERA in SEC Play.
Head Coach Dave Van Horn has confidence in Knight knowing he also came out of the bullpen last year. Van Horn hinted at the possibility of Knight as a closer, if need be, in the 2017 season. Knight struck out 46 and walked 14 in his first year as a Razorback.
The Hogs and Redhawks meet at 3 p.m. Friday Afternoon.
