Ole Miss vs. Vanderbilt

Jeremy Massie, not Christian Trent, will pitch for Ole Miss today due to some stiffness being experienced by Trent.

Ole Miss and Vanderbilt did not face one another in the regular season, but that will change today.

The Rebels and Commodores will meet in an SEC tournament elimination game at 9:30.

While losing their tournament opener to Arkansas on Wednesday did not advance the Rebels’ goal of earning a top eight seed in the NCAA tournament, a win against Vanderbilt would be a nice resume addition and would give the Rebels another opportunity here.

Vanderbilt goes into today’s game with a No. 6 RPI according to WarrenNolan.com, while Ole Miss is at 15.

The Rebels will pitch left-hander Christian Trent (8-0, 2.44), while Vanderbilt is expected to counter with right-hander Tyler Beede (7-6, 3.42).

Beede walked five but gave up only four hits and struck out six as the Commodores won 2-1.

In other news …

The last time Ole Miss went 0-2 in the SEC tournament was also the last time it had at least a share of an SEC championship. That was 2009 when the Rebels shared the West and the SEC overall with LSU. Ole Miss lost to Georgia and Florida here, the latter in an eight-inning run-rule game. The Rebels went home to host a regional and were not a national seed. … Ole Miss has lost seven straight to Vanderbilt dating back to 2009. They did not play in 2010 and 2011. Vanderbilt swept Ole Miss in Nashville in 2012 and in Oxford last year when the three games were decided by a total of five runs including a 7-6 11-inning decision in Game 3.
