Computing some baseball numbers after the weekend.
WarrenNolan.com has the Rebels with a 14 RPI following the series win against Arkansas, which comes in at 13. The Rebels and Razorbacks are tied at 9-9 in the SEC West, three games behind division-leading LSU.
Ole Miss is 12-8 against the RPI top 50, the second-most top 50 wins in the SEC, the most in the division.
The Rebels face top 50 opponents the next two weekends, first at rival Mississippi State, then at home against LSU. MSU currently sports an RPI of 40, LSU of 8.
Per Bill Bunting at media relations, Alex Yarbrough (.529, 4 doubles, 4 RBIs) is the team's nominee for SEC player of the week, Mike Mayers (6.1 IP, 2 hits, 0 runs, 2 BB, 4 K, Opp. BA .095) for pitcher of the week and Hawtin Buchanan (6.0 IP, 2 hits, 1 run, 1 BB, 11 K, Opp. BA .105) for freshman of the week.
Matt Snyder continues to hit well too. Against Arkansas he was 5-for-12 with four RBIs and two home runs. In the suspended game Snyder had a home run before the rain on Friday and after the rain on Saturday.
He's hitting .377 for the season, an average that would lead many teams but Yarbrough is hitting .433.
Snyder leads the team with 45 RBIs.
Going into the weekend, Yarbrough was second in the SEC in hitting, behind LSU's Raph Rhymes, and Snyder was fourth.
