Box Score

OXFORD, Miss. –  Auston Bousfield finished a home run shy of the cycle and scored a run, but the Rebels were unable to get runners home most of the night as No. 15 Ole Miss (11-2) fell to Memphis (11-1) by a score of 4-1.

Bousfield scored the Rebels’ only run on the night and Ole Miss left 11 men stranded despite tallying nine hits. The junior went 3-for-4 at the plate with a triple, single and double in that order.

Jeremy Massie (0-1) took the loss, allowing three runs on five hits with a walk and five strikeouts through 4.1 innings of work. He was one of four pitchers on the night for the Rebels. Aaron Greenwood and Preston Tarkington worked the final 3.2 innings without allowing a run, while surrendering only two hits and a walk.

Caleb Wallingford (3-0) picked up the win, working 6.0 scoreless innings and allowing eight hits with two walks and four strikeouts. Nolan Blackwood picked up his third save of the season.

“They were terrific defensively,” said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco. “That was the difference in the ballgame. We had so many runners on but got nothing to show for it. When they needed a great play they made it. I don’t think it was a poor performance offensively. It wasn’t like we didn’t get hits or good swings off. We needed them to not make so many great plays or us to hit a ball in a gap where they couldn’t make a play.”

Memphis got on the board in the first inning when a double and a walk put two men on before a double steal moved both men into scoring position. Drew Griffin then hit a two-out single to drive in both men and put the Tigers on top 2-0 in the first.

The visitors from Memphis added to the lead in the fifth inning when Carter White scored from third on a ground ball from Darien Tubbs. The Tigers then brought a fourth run home in the sixth inning on a sacrifice fly from White with the bases loaded to take the lead out to 4-0.

Ole Miss got on the board in the seventh when Bousfield scored on a sacrifice fly to center from Will Allen. Bousfield reached on a double before taking third on a groundout to first from Austin Anderson and set up the score on the Allen fly ball.

The Rebels could get no closer as Memphis grabbed the win in the midweek tilt.

Ole Miss returns to action this weekend, kicking off a three-game series against UALR on Friday night at Swayze Field. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. as the Rebels close out a 13-game home stand.
