Ole Miss will return to action on the baseball diamond Tuesday night at Trustmark Park in Pearl. The opponent for the No. 16 Rebels is the final one with the No. 20 Mississippi State Bulldogs in the annual Governor’s Cup contest.
Braxton Lee has been on a tear lately for the Rebels at the plate. He is hitting .300 overall, but .325 in Southeastern Conference games overall. He leads the Rebels with 21 steals in 24 attempts and tops on the team in runs scored with 35. Here is an interview with Lee prior to the start of Monday’s practice at Oxford-University Stadium.
The starter for Tuesday night’s game will be Jeremy Massie, who is 2-2 with a 2.34 ERA. Massie, a former standout at Northwest Mississippi Community College, is up for the start against the Bulldogs and expecting their best punch after they lost the series to the Rebels in Starkville.
