HOOVER, Ala. - Chris Oliver allowed only one unearned run in 6-1/3 innings to help Arkansas beat Mississippi 2-1 in the Southeastern Conference tournament on Wednesday.

Pinch-hitter Colby Bortles singled home Sikes Orvis for the Rebels' only run in the seventh.
Errol Robinson was 2 for 2 with a walk for Ole Miss.
Clark Eagan and Andrew Benintendi both had a pair of hits for Arkansas.
