Final: Memphis 10, Ole Miss 5

Opportunities to create a little breathing room with the overall record continue to slip off the calendar.

The Rebels have to be at least a game over .500 leaving the SEC tournament to be considered for an NCAA bid.

The other resume factors will be there if they continue to win some games on the SEC weekends. Not a lot of consistency with this team right now.

Here’s Mike Bianco:

Memphis jumped on Sam Smith with three runs in the first. It was a 4-3 game in the top of the fifth when the Tigers got three straight hits against Smith to load the bases. He was replaced by Evan Anderson, but Memphis got five runs in the inning.

Memphis got its 10 runs on 13 hits. The Rebels had 12 hits but had only five runs.

Ole Miss got three-hit games from Connor Cloyd, Colby Bortles (two doubles and two RBIs) and Austin Knight. Sikes Orvis had an RBI double likely would have had another had Memphis first baseman Tucker Tubbs not stabbed a line drive.

The Rebels are 21-21 overall.

Alabama is in town for three this weekend.
