Ole Miss 5, Auburn 1

Rebels sweep the day and the series to improve to 25-8 overall, 7-5 in the SEC.

Auburn took a 5-2 lead with a three-run sixth on Friday and scored just one run over the final 25 innings in the series. Ole Miss pitching went a stretch of 22 innings between Auburn runs.

Here’s Mike Bianco:


Sam Smith went 6.2 innings and scattered seven hits for the win.

Josh Laxer, the fifth Ole Miss pitcher, inherited a bases-loaded no outs situation in the eighth and struck out three batters to leave the bases full. Laxer had two perfect innings for his fourth save.

Here’s Smith:


The Rebels scored all their runs in the fifth. The big hits were a two-run double by Auston Bousfield — the Rebels’ only extra-base hit of the game — and a two-run single by Sikes Orvis.

Ole Miss had no multiple hitters.

    This Auburn baseball team must be really pathetic. To let a lower tier team like the Sharkfins win, proves it. Oh well, tougher teams exist, unless somehow they’ve scheduled around them.

      Sir, I must respectful disagree with you here,Ole miss does have a pretty good country baseball team this season. Just how far they go only time will tell. hopefu,l they can be good enough to bring a play off tournament to Oxford this season.

      No body is voting for you Sid “^”. LOL!
      Yep, Auburn let Ole Miss sweep ’em. Good logic from a trailer troll from Pearl.
      Guess what Sid? Ole Miss Rebels are now the #2 team in the SEC West. Alabama (who swept Ole Miss last weekend) in #1 and OMG…M00 U. is now in 3rd place. I guess M00 U. let LSU beat them 2 in a row soon to make it a ‘sweep’. hahahaha

      You know nothing about sports, obviously. You just disrespect the school that gave you an education. How did MSU do against LSU this weekend? Oh yeah! I remember… They got shut out Friday night and then only scored 1 run last night. Auburn was second in the West before this weekend. Please do talk so we can see how incredibly ludicrous you are.
