UNIVERSITY PARK, Fla. – Sophomore right-hander Sam Smith turned in a stellar performance for the No. 8 Ole Miss baseball team on Sunday, allowing only one unearned run through six innings as the Rebels defeated Florida International 8-1.
The win completed a series sweep of the Panthers and gave the Ole Miss (11-1 overall) its third consecutive series sweep to open the season. It’s the first time the Rebels have posted three series sweeps to open a year since the 2004 season. Ole Miss defeated FIU (7-5) 11-9 Friday and 8-3 on Saturday.
