The Ole Miss baseball team got good outings from their first two weekend starters. The same could not be said for the third. Freshman Will Stokes lasted less than an inning in 13-4 loss to Alabama Sunday afternoon at Oxford-University Stadium. The win salvaged the series for the Crimson Tide (23-20, 8-13 Southeastern Conference) after getting swept by Ole Miss (23-22; 10-11) in Saturday’s twinbill. (April 27, 2015, Page 6)
