No. 24 Rebels wash away Murray State

It was far from pretty, but the No. 24 Rebels came away from Wednesday’s non-conference game with a lopsided win.

Following a delay due to scattered rain showers that soaked the playing field, Ole Miss pounded out 12 hits en route to an 11-5 victory over Murray State at Oxford-University Stadium. (more…) (May 3, 2012, Page 6)

Patience pays off for Ole Miss’ Gatlin

Especially early in the season, John Gatlin could often be seen well after the final out of any particular game was made, jogging out of the Ole Miss dugout, inserting headphones into his ears and jogging from the left field foul pole to the right field foul pole and back.

To Gatlin, a sparsely used transfer from Itawamba Community College, the extra work was necessary in order to remain in game-shape should he be called upon. (more…) (April 20, 2012, Page 6A)

Late-game heroics lift Rebs past No. 1 Florida

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

And yet, when Sunday’s game against No. 1 Florida was on the line, the No. 16 Rebels called upon a pitcher to flash his speed and score the winning run. (more…) (April 2, 2012, Page 8)

Reb RHP justifies ace status

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)

Auburn pitchers stymie Rebel bats

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)

Tigers take advantage of No. 12 Rebs

Could Preston Overbey see time at catcher?

Ole Miss sophomore Preston Overbey made his career debut at catcher on Tuesday, catching right-handed freshman Chris Ellis in a perfect ninth.

Due to the injury to sophomore Will Allen, and Taylor Hightower no longer being a member of the team, the Rebels only have freshman Austin Knight and junior college transfer Kody Sepulveda as catchers on the roster.

Overbey has been working in practice at catcher because of the dwindling numbers behind the plate, so Bianco opted to give the corner infielder some game action against UT-Martin. (March 7, 2012, Page 7)

3B Mistone looks back at ‘the catch’

Almost 24 hours after he made what can now be referred to as “the catch,” Ole Miss third baseman Andrew Mistone is still fielding questions regarding his acrobatic snag that altered Sunday’s outcome in the Rebels’ favor.

For starters, Mistone doesn’t recall being able to see the contact made and then thinking to himself he better dive to his left with his glove open just right or a run will score.

The catch he made was all instinctual. (March 6, 2012, Page 6)

No. 16 Rebels hold on to top Redhawks, take series

BLOG: It all comes down to today.

After errors and an early deficit cost the No. 16 Rebels in Game 1 of the three-game series on Friday, Ole Miss came roaring back on Saturday to split the series and set up a winner-takes-all game today at Oxford-University Stadium.

First pitch is set for just after 1:30 p.m. (more…) (March 4, 2012)
