Game 1: Ole Miss 1, Vanderbilt 0

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Ole Miss pitches and pitches. The Rebels have put together five-straight shutouts, and this time Vanderbilt fell victim to the Rebel staff. Ole Miss allowed just three hits, and Tim Rowe came through in a big way in the sixth inning to give Ole Miss the 1-0 victory. 

Player of the Game: David Parkinson. He didn't have his best stuff tonight, but he battled through six innings of scoreless baseball. The leadoff man reached in four of his five innings, but the junior showed why he's the Friday night starter for Ole Miss. He found his way out of jams, none bigger in the third inning. Vanderbilt loaded them up with no outs, but Parkinson got the first out via batter's interference. He got the next batter to ground into a 6-4-3 double play to keep the game tied at 0 in a big momentum-shifting escape. 

Key Moment:  The first two batters of the sixth were retired for Ole Miss, and it seemed like Kyle Wright might have an easy inning. An opportunity was presented after Bortles and Dillard both reached with two outs. Mike Bianco went to the bench for Tim Rowe to pinch hit and break the 0-0 deadlock. With a 1-1 count, he did just that. He sent a ball on a line into left field to score Bortles and drive in the only run of the contest.

Number of the Game: 1-for-13. Vanderbilt had baserunners for most of the game. The leadoff man reached in four of the nine innings, so there were opportunities. However, Ole Miss' pitching was fantastic when a Commodore reached base. Vanderbilt managed just one hit with a runner on, going 1-for-13. That 1-for-13 includes a hitless 0-for-6 with a RISP.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
