Ole Miss baseball is in Hammond, La., tonight and tomorrow for two games against Southeastern Louisiana.
I expect they’ll be two competitive games, because Ole Miss mid-week baseball games typically are and because the Lions are typically pretty good. Maybe the Rebels can win a couple of celebrate with a visit to Hi-Ho bar-b-cue on the way out of town.
The early baseball season has seen quite a turnaround for Josh Laxer, a highly decorated pitcher out of Madison Central two years ago.
Laxer hasn’t been Mike Bianco’s first option out of the bullpen, but he might become that if the continues down his current path.
Through 11.2 innings Laxer has allowed only one run, and it was unearned. What jumps out at your relative to his first two seasons is his strikeout-to-walk ratio. Right now that’s 17-to-1.
From the Mother Ship, Laxer says he’s pitching with a great deal of confidence right now.
