After rain delayed Game 1 of the Arkansas-Ole Miss series on Friday, you'd be forgiven for thinking this weekend would be a low-scoring slop fest.

Friend, it was anything but that.

These two teams played three games in a little over a 24-hour span, and they combined for 61 total runs. (Yes, you read that right.)

Big bats and clutch relievers ruled the day. Who stood the tallest? Here are our picks:

1️⃣ Pair Of Kings: Cayden Wallace and Christian Franklin combined for 10 RBIs, accounting for 32% of the Razorbacks' total scoring on the weekend.

2️⃣ Battle(s) Royal: Jalen Battles went 6-for-13, hitting .461 on the weekend. Throw in three RBIs of his own and that's a banner weekend for the junior shortstop.

3️⃣ Struck Gold: No, I will not stop talking about Kevin Kopps. The redshirt senior was given 6.0 innings of relief work and he turned it into nine strikeouts, two walks, one earned run, and his fifth win of the season.

Honorable Mention: How does catcher Casey Opitz... well... catch all of these? The dude is a machine.

Arkansas baseball hosts University of Arkansas Pine Bluff in a non-conference midweek series at home starting on Tuesday night at 6:30pm CT. You can watch the game on SEC Network+.
