No. 16 Rebels host JSU Tigers tonight

After taking two of three at Alabama, the No. 16 Ole Miss Rebels return to the diamond tonight to host Jackson State.

First pitch is set for 6:30.

Ole Miss (17-7 overall) topped JSU (16-7) 13-1 in their makeup game on Feb 29.

Right-handed freshman Josh Laxer earned the win what was his first collegiate start.

Senior designated hitter Zach Kirksey led the team offensively with a 2-for-3 day at the plate that included five RBIs, a walk and a three-run homer.

JSU enters tonight’s game fresh off of a road series win at Florida A&M.

Kendall Logan leads the Tigers with a .386 batting average. He also has eight home runs and 28 RBIs.

Starting for the first time this season will be Chris Ellis.

The freshman right-hander is 1-0 with a 3.86 ERA in 11.2 innings of work.

Ellis has also struck out nine and walked three. (March 27, 2012, Page 10)
