From the Hattiesburg American, looking ahead to tonight’s Southern Miss-Ole Miss game at Trustmark Park in Pearl. The Golden Eagles, who soundly defeated the Rebels 10-0 in Oxford two weeks ago, see this as an RPI opportunity.

The Rebels are coming off a two-of-three series win against No. 1 Florida, and closer Brett Huber was a big part of that success. The Belleville News-Democrat takes a look at Huber here.

Though enjoying the wins against Florida, Ole Miss players talked of the importance of moving on prior to Monday’s practice. Tonight’s game will be a big test in that regard.

The mood was light before Monday’s workout. It’s always entertaining to watch pitchers take batting practice. They’re eager to talk about their accomplishments among themselves and to anyone who will listen.

That was especially true for reliever Dylan Chavez who homered three times off assistant coach Cliff Godwin, the BP pitcher. The Chavez blasts when to right-center once and to right field twice.

After Bobby Wahl scored the game-winning run as a pinch-runner Sunday, it looks like all the pitchers want an expanded role.
