Alabama 7, Ole Miss 6

Ole Miss’ Chris Ellis and Alabama’s Spencer Turnbull, two SEC starters with sub-1 ERAs, both got rocked, but Turnbull lasted longer.

While Ole Miss got solid pitching from the bullpen, Turnbull left the game leading, and the Rebels could not rally against freshman left-hander Thomas Burrows, who pitched 2.1 relief innings with only one hit, no walks and four strikeouts.

Here’s Mike Bianco:


Austin Anderson was 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs, and Braxton Lee  was 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored.

The Rebels had 10 hits against Turnbull, a former Madison Central standout.

Here’s Anderson:


The Rebels fall to 21-6 overall, 4-3 in the SEC. Alabama improves to 17-8, 4-3.

Game 2 is tomorrow at 6. The forecast calls for showers early. The field was quickly covered after the game.
