On a day where offense was tough to come by it was defense that made the play when it mattered most. No. 18 Ole Miss beat Wright State 3-2 in Game 2 of Sunday double header thanks to a double play that started with shortstop Errol Robinson snagging a liner hit by Raider Andrew McCafferty then tossing it to second baseman Tate Blackman for the final out and securing the series win. The Rebels (4-2) dropped the first game of the day by a score of 3-1 to create the rubber match. Game 2 was a shortened seven-inning affair. (February 23, 2015, Page 6)
With potentially bad winter weather hitting the area today, the No. 18 Ole Miss baseball team finished its opening series with William & Mary on Saturday with a doubleheader. The first game was one to forget as Sam Smith had a bad outing that did not last four innings as the Rebels fell 8-1 to the Tribe. The Rebels would come back to win the second game 16-2 to claim the weekend series. (February 15, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)
On Friday afternoon, the 2015 season begins for the Ole Miss baseball team. And for the first time in the Mike Bianco era, the goal is not to get to Omaha, but to get back to there. (February 12, 2015, Page 5A)
Making a return trip to Omaha and the College World Series is a tough task for any baseball team no matter how talented. That is just what Ole Miss plans to do though after getting back to the CWS for the first time since 1972 last season and becoming one of the final four teams fighting for a national championship before being ousted by eventual runner-up Virginia. That journey began last Friday as teams were allowed to begin formally practicing across the country. Ole Miss is preparing for its season-opening series against William & Mary beginning on Feb. 13.

LAFAYETTE, La. — Before this season, OIe Miss coach Mike Bianco had led four different Ole Miss teams to an NCAA super regional. None of them got to the College World Series.
That’s not the case any more and it’s because the 2014 Rebels did what they had to do to overcome adversity and mistakes. They did it again Monday in a 10-4 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette that earned them a trip to the CWS. (June 10, 2014, Page 6)
