The Southeastern Conference’s Western Division leader board isn’t any clearer after a weekend that saw No. 15 Ole Miss drop two of three games to Alabama at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.
After the Rebels overcame a slew of walks and errors to claim a 5-4 win on Friday, they fell to the Crimson Tide in a 4-1 loss on Saturday and a 6-3 loss on Sunday.
As a result, Ole Miss (36-17 overall, 16-11 in the Southeastern Conference) will head into its final weekend series one game behind Auburn — which took two of three from Tennessee this weekend — for the top spot in the SEC West, and tied with Arkansas, who was swept by South Carolina.

One week ago Ole Miss pitcher Drew Pomeranz struggled mightily in his Friday night start against LSU, walking a career-high nine batters.
