Ole Miss 8, Texas A&M 4

Great start to the final regular season series for the Rebels, who in all likelihood wrapped up a home regional.

Chris Ellis scattered eight hits over 6.2 innings. He walked one and struck out two. Four of A&M’s hits against him went for extra bases, two doubles and two home runs, but Ellis completes the regular season undefeated at 9-0.

Jeremy Massie, so strong in his previous SEC relief outings, wasn’t very good tonight. Massie faced three batters and retired no one, giving up two hits and a walk.

Aaron Greenwood came on to get the last out of the seventh and finished the game, throwing a total of 2.1 innings with one hit, a walk, two strikeouts and no runs to pick up his third save.

The Rebels had 12 hits, two each from J.B. Woodman, Sikes Orvis and Errol Robinson. Will Allen had a double and two RBIs. Preston Overbey was 1-for-4 with two RBIs. Braxton Lee had an RBI hit, and Colby Bortles had a run-scoring pinch hit as part of a two-run ninth.

Neither MSU nor LSU helped the Rebels tonight, both winning easily. MSU won 9-4 at Alabama, and LSU won 10-0 at Auburn. Ole Miss needs one more win to clinch the SEC West outright.

    A good and much needed win for the Rebels of Mississippi, to keep them one game a head of their brothers at Miss state, but The Gators need one more win or a loss by Ole Miss at Texas A&M this weekend to claim the league crown outright. GO Gators!!
    So who will win that SEC West division? Ole Miss in the hot seat, as I see it.

    I came across this on the ESPN SEC blog. Look who is last with zero wins against ranked teams.
    Below are the records for all 14 SEC teams over the past three seasons against teams that finished the season nationally ranked in one of the final polls. In parentheses are the records against top-10 foes.

    1. South Carolina: 12-3, .800 (5-2)
    2. Alabama: 8-4, .667 (4-4)
    3. LSU: 9-5, .643 (6-5)
    4. Texas A&M: 5-10, .333 (1-6)
    5. Georgia: 5-11, .312 (2-9)
    6. Florida: 5-12, .294 (3-7)
    7. Auburn: 4-13, .235 (3-8)
    8. Missouri: 3-12, .200 (0-8)
    9. Arkansas: 2-11, .154 (1-8)
    10. Ole Miss: 2-15, .118 (0-9)
    10. Tennessee: 2-15, .118 (1-12)
    12. Vanderbilt: 0-12, .000 (0-8)
    13. Kentucky: 0-13, .000 (0-8)
    14. Mississippi State: 0-15, .000 (0-9)

      Ole Miss beat #6 LSU last year, but they were out of the top 10 (#14 or so) at the end of the season.

    I see that the black bears/ pink landsharks are 0 – 9 vs top ten teams just like State. So what’s your point, Jacko?

    • Captain Jack

      Ole Miss was terrible 3 years ago and has been rebuilding for the last 2 years, and still has more wins against ranked teams than state. The point is all you state fans think that mullen is some great coach but this shows where state is really at.

      • TheGiantRebel

        now THAT is a true story!

    • a name

      lol. Leave it to a yellow dog/mastitis udder to try to twist the fact that msu is in decline…
