Kirksey leads Rebels past Austin Peay

The story line for most of the early baseball season has been Ole Miss’ ability to find ways to win and Tuesday was no different as a Zach Kirksey sacrifice fly in the 10th inning lifted the No. 28 Rebels to a 5-4 victory over Austin Peay at Oxford-University Stadium.

Ole Miss trailed for the bulk of the game and after a two-run fourth put the Governors ahead 3-1, Ole Miss remained behind until an RBI-single from freshman Austin Anderson in the eighth inning tied the game 4-4 and eventually sent it into extra innings.With one out and runners on the corners, Kirksey got a hold of a slider from Austin Peay relief pitcher Zane Leffew — the seventh Govs pitcher of the game — and lifted it deep enough into center field to score Jordan King from third base without a throw. (March 2, 2011, Page 6)
