Brady Bramlett pitched a career-long 7 1-3 innings. He scattered four hits, walked none and struck out nine.
Fastball command was really impressive, and Bramlett talked about making some adjustments to his off-speed stuff that he and Carl Lafferty worked on during the week.
Scott Weathersby followed Bramlett with 1 2-3 innings of hitless, scoreless relief. The ninth inning was a lot easier, though, after Sikes Orvis and Austin Knight had back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the eighth.
Ole Miss has secured just its third SEC series win of the year. The Rebels have won just one SEC Game 3 and have swept no one. They’ll try to do that tomorrow at noon on ESPN.
Thanks to Bramlett tonight, and Christian Trent earlier, they’ll have a rested bullpen to take to the task.
Weathersby threw just 23 pitches tonight, and Wyatt Short wasn’t used at all today.
