Razorback baseball fans perturbed by game two loss

News

After the Razorback baseball team earned a convincing win against Ole Miss in the teams’ first super regional matchup, fans understandably expected much of the same in the second game. By the ninth inning, it was clear the Hogs and Rebels would play a season-deciding game three with Omaha on the line.

Ole Miss won 13-5 on Sunday.

“It was fairly one sided, and when you’re playing against a good team and the umpires, especially the home-plate umpire, it’s very difficult,” said Jason Kennedy, a Razorback fan who attended the game.

The Rebels racked up 11 walks compared to Arkansas’ lone walk. Fans voiced their displeasure with the umpire crew from the first inning to the last.

Though the game went Ole Miss’ way throughout, Razorback fans were confident in their predictions that the Hogs would ultimately sweep the Rebels in two games. The majority of projections were lopsided in Arkansas’ favor.

Still, the Razorbacks’ overwhelming success combined with their home-field advantage in Baum-Walker Stadium led fans to still declare their confidence after the loss.

“We have to not walk a lot of people, and we have to score more runs than they do,” Kennedy said. “I think us being the home team tomorrow, we’ll be all right.”
