The uniforms have barely dried after washing out the celebratory grass stains stemming from Sunday’s ninth-inning victory and the No. 10 Ole Miss Rebels have already put the victorious Florida series behind them.
With an in-state rivalry game against Southern Miss slated for tonight in Pearl and a tough road test at No. 8 Kentucky awaiting Ole Miss this weekend, the Rebels said Monday that they have already moved on. (April 3, 2012, Page 8)
The athleticism on this year’s Ole Miss baseball team trumps that of any squad in recent memory.
Looking back on the Florida series, the first visual that will come to mind may be Bobby Wahl’s impromptu mad dash around the bases, but it was his performance on Friday that really set the tone for the weekend.
The sophomore right-hander has continually pitched well for the Rebels, but Friday’s career-long performance may provide the best evidence that Wahl belongs in the discussion as one of the Southeastern Conference’s elite. (more…) (April 2, 2012, Page 8)
Mike Bianco jogged out of Ole Miss’ dugout Thursday afternoon, saw several television cameras in addition to the usual group of reporters and asked anyone within ear shot if the No. 16 Rebels were playing the New York Yankees.
On Feb. 29, Zach Kirksey hit a three-run homer that helped key a 13-1 romping of Jackson State.
Tuesday, Kirksey hit another three-run blast and the No. 16 Ole Miss Rebels cruised to a 12-0 victory over Jackson State at Oxford-University Stadium.
The No. 17 Rebels entered Tuesday night’s in-state rivalry game with Southern Miss looking to get back on track after a less than offensive weekend against Auburn.
Instead, it was the Golden Eagles that got offensive in a 10-0 victory at Oxford-University Stadium. (March 21, 2012, Page 6)
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.
Tiger left fielder Cullen Wacker then hit a double into the opposite corner, scoring Tella to tie the game.
The second double ended the day of Ole Miss starter Mike Mayers, who had limited the Tigers to just four hits until the ninth.
With Rebel closer Brett Huber on the mound, Auburn first baseman Garrett Cooper hit a single up the middle, scoring Wacker to put the Tigers ahead of No. 12 Ole Miss 3-2. (March 19, 2012, Page 6)
The No. 12 Ole Miss Rebels entered this weekend’s Southeastern Conference opener as the league’s second-most offensive team in terms of runs scored.
After dropping two of three and being limited to just eight total runs, well below their 8.59 average per game, the Rebels were left looking for answers. (March 19, 2012, Page 6)
After this weekend’s Southeastern Conference opener against the new-look Auburn Tigers, Allen may need to ice down his shoulder.
The Auburn Tigers (10-7 overall) head into today’s first game of the three-game set leading the nation in stolen bases.
For a team that was once as likely to knock the ball out of the park as it was to swipe second, the rank denotes an obvious change in philosophy on The Plains. (March 16, 2012, Page 7A)
Did the No. 14 Ole Miss Rebels expect to claim their final non-conference series?
