Mayers, Rebels on the rebound

Ole Miss baseball was back at it Monday a day after dropping the Sunday game and the series at Florida.

Mike Mayers, the Rebels’ No. 2 starter, is looking for more consistency in his game. That could come from finding the right tempo on the mound. That’s something he’s looking at.

Ole Miss hitting coach Cliff Godwin says improvement needs to come in the mental approach right now.

“It’s not anything with our swings. We’ve got the same swings we had against A&M on Friday night, Florida on Friday night when we scored some runs. I think at some point our guys have gotten too comfortable. When we’ve played well they’ve thought that we could just roll out the balls and win. It’s more of a mentality than it is anything else.”

The Rebels are hitting .286 overall, fifth in the league, but just .220 against the league, which ranks them 13th out of 14 SEC teams.

Godwin said he and the hitters got inside what he called the “honesty box” in their pre-practice meeting today.

“We had a little heart to heart. I think you’ll see that play out tomorrow night.”
