Scoring 14 runs in the first two innings, the Ole Miss baseball team busted out the bats in a convincing 18-4 victory over Central Arkansas Tuesday evening, April 21, at Swayze Field. The 18 runs were a season high for the Rebels (21-20) as they kicked off their five-game homestand with a win over the Bears (19-15).

Every Rebel in the starting lineup tallied at least one hit, one run and one RBI in the contest; the feat was accomplished by the fifth inning, marking what is believed to be the first time in Ole Miss history, according to the archives. Leadoff hitter Connor Cloyd paced the Ole Miss bats with four hits, three 11021312runs and three RBI, all personal bests on a career-high night. Hitting right behind Cloyd in the two-hole, sophomore J.B. Woodman recorded a career-best four hits and four runs. Woodman also blasted a two-run homer, his fifth of the season. Batting third, freshman Will Golsan tied a career high with his fourth three-hit night of 2015. Along with a pinch-hit single by Kyle Watson, the one through three hitters in the lineup ended the night a combined 12-for-17.
