FAYETTEVILLE — No. 1 Arkansas is set to host UAPB for a pair of midweek games with the first tonight at 6:30 p.m. in Baum-Walker Stadium.
Arkansas (26-5) is once again ranked the nation’s top team in all the major polls released Monday and Tuesday. On the other hand, UAPB (2-19) enters the series struggling to win games.
Dave Van Horn talked about the pitchers for this series.
“I think probably (Caleb) Bolden and (Kole) Ramage, probably in that order,” Van Horn said. “Those two guys will probably get the start and will see how it goes from there. I think Ramage threw yesterday and Bolden didn’t throw at all so I am thinking he will probably go game one on Tuesday.”
Bolden (1-0, 5.19 ERA) will definitely start tonight’s game, but Van Horn is holding off definitely naming Ramage for Wednesday in case he needs him tonight.
UAPB has already played a pair of games against an SEC opponent. Tennessee defeated them 21-1 and 14-6 earlier this season.
The rest of this report is from the University of Arkansas Communication’s Office.
