Game 2: Ole Miss 5, Furman 0

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


For the second game in a row, Ole Miss got a dominant outing from its starting pitcher. Working a day earlier than usual, Brady Feigl was masterful in his eight scoreless innings to give the Rebels the series-clinching 5-0 win. Between Feigl and David Parkinson's performance last night, Ole Miss starters have worked 16 scoreless innings while allowing just four hits against Furman in this series.

Player of the Game: Brady Feigl. The right-hander was dominant in his eight innings of work. He struck out 10 while allowing just one walk and three hits. He consistently was ahead in counts and didn't allow Furman many opportunities at any point. While the wind was blowing in, that had nothing to do with Feigl's great outing. Furman was rolling over most pitches that led to 11 ground outs against just three fly outs. When 21 of the 24 outs recorded are via strikeout or groundout, it's obvious the pitcher was on top of his game.

Key Moment: When a pitcher is having a day like Feigl, it doesn't take much run support. Ole Miss supplied him with enough runs for the win with one swing of the bat in the second inning. Michael Fitzsimmons drove a 3-1 fastball through the teeth of the wind and into the left field bullpen for a two-run home run. From there, Ole Miss never looked back.

Quotable: "When you look at the box score, it was all about Brady Feigl," Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco said. "I don't think he pitched well because of the weather. I don't think he pitched well because they hit a lot of balls and the wind stopped it. He could have pitched if the wind was gushing out. He would have pitched very similar to this. I don't think they hit a ball deep and long where the wind caught it. I'm pleased with that and the way we played defense. We can do that; we can pitch and play defense."

    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.
