Drew Pomeranz showed why he was named pitcher of the year as he threw seven shutout innings for Ole Miss in Wednesday’s opener with South Carolina in the Southeastern Conference Baseball Tournament in Hoover, Ala. Reliver Brett Huber finished the game for a save and Miles Hamblin’s two-run homer in the third inning was the big blast in the Rebels’ 3-0 victory.
Ole Miss joined Alabama, LSU and Vanderbilt as opening-day winners in the tournament at Regions Park. The Rebels will play Alabama today at 4:30 p.m. The winner will get Friday off, while the loser will face the Auburn-South Carolina winner in a 3 p.m. contest Friday. (May 27, 2010, Page 6)
