Former St. Stanislaus ace Greer Holston had another strong showing Tuesday.
The Ole Miss freshman started for the Rebels in their school day game against Arkansas-Little Rock and tossed 5 1/3 shutout innings before giving way to Ole Miss’ relievers. Holston was in line for the win, but UALR rallied to tie the game before Michael Fitzsimmons’ pinch-hit single in the 10th inning gave the Rebels a 5-4 win.
Holston allowed three hits, two walks and hit another batter. He also struck out three. His 5 1/3 shutout innings extended his streak to 12 1/3 innings without surrendering a run.
In nine appearances and three starts, Holston is 0-2 with a 2.28 ERA. He has struck out 24 against nine walks in 23 2/3 innings and is limiting opponents to a .235 batting average.
Fellow freshman Houston Roth struck out the side in the 10th to earn his first collegiate win. Colby Bortles and Cole Zabowski led the Rebels (16-9) with two hits apiece.
