By his own admission, Ole Miss starter Bobby Wahl just didn’t have his stuff last Friday at Kentucky.
The right-handed ace was very un-Wahl-like, walking four in four innings against the Wildcats, and said he felt like he had a “dead arm” while warming up in the bullpen.
After four innings he was pulled in favor of relief pitcher Aaron Greenwood. (April 12, 2012, Page 6)

The athleticism on this year’s Ole Miss baseball team trumps that of any squad in recent memory.

Down to their final strike of the series, Auburn center fielder Ryan Tella hit a two-out double that soared down the left field foul line and barely dropped in fair between the foul line and sliding Ole Miss left fielder Tanner Mathis.

The second double ended the day of Ole Miss starter Mike Mayers, who had limited the Tigers to just four hits until the ninth.
