CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — With the season on the line, No. 24 Ole Miss scored 16 runs against St. John’s in the elimination game of the Charlottesville Regional on Sunday.

The problem, however, was that not only did Ole Miss starter David Goforth and relief pitcher Trent Rothlin combine to surrender eight runs in the first inning, but the Red Storm was able to respond to Ole Miss’ scores throughout the game en route to a 20-16 victory at Davenport Field.
