During Ole Miss’ 7-2 victory over Southern Miss on Tuesday at Oxford-University Stadium, left-hander Matt Crouse had his bid broken in the top of the sixth when a pop-up from Southern Miss catcher Travis Graves dropped in for a hit between Alex Yarbrough and Miles Hamblin behind the first base bag.
