Austin Anderson’s walk-off single wins it. The Rebels overcome some poor pitching to move to 32-14. It was an uncharacteristic start for Josh Laxer, who did not get out of the first inning.
Scott Weathersby had a nice night with no runs and two hits over 4.1 innings after Laxer, but other middle relievers struggled.
But the Rebels got some clutch offense late. Stuart Turner’s two-run single tied it up in the ninth. The Rebels had a chance to win it later in the inning on a basehit from Andrew Mistone, but Anderson was thrown out at the plate.
Turner went 4-for-5 to lead a 17-hit Ole Miss attack.
Tanner Mathis was 3-for-5 including a single to lead off the bottom of the 11th.
Sikes Orvis had a three-hit night as well, going 3-for-4. Orvis and Turner had doubles.
Brett Huber and Tanner Bailey kind of settled the pitching down late, each throwing an inning with no hits, runs or walks. Bailey pitched the 11th and got the win. He was the last of nine Ole Miss pitchers.
The Rebels are back in action Friday at 6:30 at Auburn.
