Game 3: Ole Miss 9, Missouri 6

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Today, that's what Ole Miss' offense did as they outslugged Missouri to win 9-6. The Rebels were gifted with seven walks from the Mizzou pitching staff, and Ole Miss took advantage by hitting .353 with runners on base and .364 with runners in scoring position.The win gave Ole Miss a vital series win against Missouri to keep pace in the SEC with a 9-9 conference record. 

Player of the Game: Nick Fortes. Fortes had been one of Ole Miss' most consistent hitters leading up to this series, but Missouri held him hitless over the first two games. On Sunday, he changed that. He doubled twice in three plate appearance to drive in three runs for the Rebels. 

Key Moment: In the top of the fourth, Missouri chipped away at the Ole Miss lead, cutting the deficit to 4-1. The Rebels stretched that lead back out in the bottom half of the inning by throwing up a five-spot on the scoreboard in response. After singles from Grae Kessinger and Will Golsan, Colby Bortles hammered an 0-1 pitch into the Ole Miss bullpen for a three-run home run. The Rebels weren't finished either. Ryan Olenek and Tim Rowe both singled to bring up Fortes. Fortes would put the cherry on top of the inning with a shot into left field for a double to drive in both runners. Ole Miss took a 9-1 lead into the next inning. Missouri would shrink the lead, but the eight-run cushion Ole Miss created in the fourth was large enough to withstand it for the series win.

    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.
