A lot will be on the line this weekend when the No. 15 Ole Miss baseball team heads east to face the Alabama Crimson Tide for a three-game series beginning tonight at 6:35 at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.
For Ole Miss, this weekend’s series is about trying to stay in the fight for the Southeastern Conference Western Division title. For Alabama, it’s about keeping a spot in the SEC Tournament. (May 14, 2010, Page 6A)
Ole Miss’ junior ace showed a dip in his velocity last weekend in his start against Arkansas, which raised eyebrows not only amongst Rebel fans, but also with baseball people across the nation due to his high projections in this June’s draft. (May 12, 2010, Page 8)
On Sunday, Razorback right-hander Mike Bolsinger led the charge in Arkansas’ 7-0 victory over Ole Miss.
Two days after allowing two runs in 1.1 innings of relief work, Bolsinger — who had began the year as Arkansas’ Friday night starter — was able to keep the Ole Miss bats at bay, surrendering just two hits in 8.0 innings while striking out a career-high 11 batters. (May 10, 2010, Page 1B)
The senior from Evansville, Ind., looked like the dominant right-hander Rebel fans became accustomed to earlier in the season.
After allowing 10 combined runs in his previous two outings against LSU and Mississippi State, Barrett stifled Razorback batters, allowing one run in 8.0 innings of work. (May 10, 2010, Page 4B)
It’s far from lonely atop the Southeastern Conference Western Division standings for the No. 13 Ole Miss baseball team.
In fact, the team they share first with, No. 14 Arkansas, will be in Oxford this weekend looking to not only separate itself from the Rebels, but also get even for last season.
A year ago, the Rebels traveled to Arkansas and swept the Razorbacks to earn a share of the SEC Title with LSU.
This weekend, expect the Razorbacks (35-10 overall, 14-7 SEC) to be looking for payback. (May 7, 2010, Page 6A)
Ole Miss closer Brett Huber was named the Southeastern Conference’s Pitcher of the Week Monday by the league office.
Huber, a redshirt freshman from Belleville, Ill., not only picked up the win on Tuesday against Murray State, but he also played a pivotal role in the Rebels’ first three-game sweep at Mississippi State since 1972, picking up saves on Friday and Saturday. (May 4, 2010, Page 8)
One week ago Ole Miss pitcher Drew Pomeranz struggled mightily in his Friday night start against LSU, walking a career-high nine batters.
By his own admission, something was off but he just wasn’t sure what that something was.
Then, during the second inning of the Rebels’ 4-2 win at Mississippi State on Friday he realized what was wrong. (May 3, 2010, Page 2B)
STARKVILLE —It wasn’t pretty, but No. 16 Ole Miss got a 4-2 win in Game 1 over Mississippi State tonight at Dudy Noble Field.
