Ramage will start for Razorbacks in Houston
Arkansas pitcher Kole Ramage looks toward first base during a game against Eastern Illinois on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2020, in Fayetteville.
FAYETTEVILLE Junior right hander Kole Ramage will be Arkansas’ third starter during the Razorbacks’ time at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Classic in Houston.
Ramage will start during Arkansas’ game against Baylor that is scheduled to begin Sunday at 7 p.m. at Minute Maid Park. It will be his second start this season and sixth start of his career.
Ramage allowed 2 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks in a 2 ⅔-inning start against Gonzaga last Thursday. He has pitched three times this season and has a 2.84 ERA in 6 ⅓ innings.
"We just feel like he has an opportunity to be more fresh and show us what he can do," Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said. "We'll give him all this week. He won't pitch for us Friday or Saturday, and he'll start for us on Sunday."
Arkansas will start sophomore right hander Connor Noland (2-0, 1.42 ERA) in its game against Oklahoma on Friday at 3 p.m. Sophomore left hander Patrick Wicklander (2-0, 0.00 ERA) will start the Razorbacks’ game against Texas on Saturday at 7 p.m.
