Final: Tennessee 4, Ole Miss 2

Ole Miss made mistakes early and was never able to off-set them with hitting. The Rebels had just four hits, all singles, and dropped the series to the Vols.

After getting 13 hits in a 10-7 win on Friday, Ole Miss committed five errors and hit just .171 the rest of the weekend.

Freshman right-hander Will Stokes made his third-straight start and went 5 2-3 innings, his longest yet. He was close to coming out in the second inning but righted himself and at one point set down 10 straight.

He gave up four runs but only two earned runs. He walked two and struck out four.

Tennessee left-hander Drake Owenby went eight innings with four hits, two walks and six strikeouts.

The Rebels missed a great opportunity to tie or take the lead in the seventh. Trailing 4-1 they loaded the bases with no outs.

The Vols had a right-hander warming in the bullpen but stayed with Owenby to face left-hitting Sikes Orvis. Orvis drove in a run, but it was with a weak ground ball to first base. Owenby then fanned Austin Knight and Kyle Watson to get out of the inning.

Tennessee had only six hits, but five of those came with runners on base.
