Box Score

OXFORD, Miss. - Senior left-hander Matt Tracy turned in a career-night for the Rebels, striking out 11 batters and turning in 7.0 scoreless innings as Ole Miss (14-4) shutout Jackson State (7-8) on Tuesday night by a score of 8-0.

Tracy (2-1) picked up his second win of the season in the outing as the Rebels have now allowed only one run in the last 36.0 innings of baseball.

Jeremy Gray (0-1) suffered the loss for Jackson State as he allowed four runs on three hits with a walk and a strikeout.

Three Rebels notched multiple hits on the night as Tanner Mathis, Blake Newalu and Alex Yarbrough all came up with two hits. Mathis and Yarbrough both drove in two runs on the night, as did Matt Snyder in the third spot in the lineup.

"It was a clean night for us and it all started on the mound," said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco. "Matt Tracy was very aggressive for us and able to get ahead of a lot of hitters. We were able to put a couple of innings together. We're getting better and continue to improve offensively."

The Rebels put four runs on the board in the third inning, using a hit batter and a bunt single to put two men on board. Tanner Mathis then lay down a sac bunt to move Taylor Hightower and Newalu into scoring position before Alex Yarbrough came up with double to right field to drive in both runners. A double to right from Matt Snyder in the next at bat scored Yarbrough to give the Rebels a 3-0 lead.

Snyder took third on a grounder deep in the hole at short from Preston Overbey before scoring on a wild pitch to give Ole Miss the 4-0 lead.

The Rebels pushed a fifth run home in the seventh inning when Snyder came up with a bases loaded walk to score Hightower. The catcher singled to open the inning and then stole second before moving to third on a single from Yarbrough that loaded the bases.

Three more runs came home in the eighth as Overbey doubled to open the frame before Hightower came up with a two-out walk to put two men on. Newalu singled through the left side to score Overbey before a two-RBI double up the middle from Mathis gave the Rebels the final 8-0 margin of victory.

Ole Miss returns to action on Friday when the Rebels open Southeastern Conference play against the Alabama Crimson Tide. First pitch for the opening game of the three-game series is set for 6:30 p.m. at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field.

Saturday's game time was moved to 2 p.m. earlier in the season to accommodate SportSouth who will be televising that game of the series.
