The Alabama Crimson Tide sent the Ole Miss Rebels packing with a 7-5 extra innings victory.
“It’s always disappointing to finish here and not on the weekend. That’s the reason it’s the number one baseball conference in the country. This is the reason it’s the best tournament in the country. It’s very unforgiving. If you don’t play well, you lose” said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco. Continue reading
The Arkansas Razorbacks handed the Ole Miss Rebels their first loss of the SEC tournament as they defeated them 2-1 on Wednesday morning. The game was a pitchers’ duel with a run scored by each team in the first inning and none following until Brian Anderson scored the final run in extra innings on a wild pitch.
“It was a very well played game. Both pitchers and bullpens did a tremendous job. We got out of some jams. We both hit some line drives. We had the unfortunate play that would have been a two-run single and given us a two-run lead going into the ninth and it hits a runner in the foot. It just figures that the game would end on a wild pitch, the most exciting play in baseball next to the sacrifice fly. From our standpoint, we were glad to see it,” said Razorback head coach Dave Van Horn. Continue reading

Offensively, Rebel leadoff man Tanner Mathis is one of the hottest bats in the SEC coming off of a 7-10 weekend at LSU. Pair Mathis’s current hot-streak with the consistent bats of Turner, Mistone and Anderson, and the Rebel offense has the ability to do some damage in Hoover. Continue reading
