Rebels Fall To Memphis At AutoZone Park

April 5, 2011

Box Score

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The Rebels fell behind early and couldn’t recover as Ole Miss (19-11) fell to Memphis (17-11) by a score of 9-2 on Tuesday at AutoZone Park.

Matt Tracy (3-2) suffered the loss for the Rebels as he allowed six runs on five hits with two walks and three strikeouts in 1.2 innings of work.

Sam Moll (2-1) grabbed the win for Memphis as he worked 7.0 innings and held the Rebels scoreless with two hits, two walks and eight strikeouts.

The Rebels notched a pair of runs on five hits, with both runs coming in the eighth inning off reliever Tyler Farley.

“It was a tough night,” said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco. “Memphis played well and put together two big innings. We couldn’t stop them in those innings, but the way we were swinging the bat it wouldn’t have mattered. It was a tough night and a disappointing night.”

Memphis struck first, scoring a run in the second inning when Robby Graham came up with an RBI single down the left field line that scored Phillip Chapman from third. Ethan Gross then doubled to left to score a second run and leave two men in scoring position with one out.

The Rebels recorded a second out on a sac bunt attempt that Tracy fielded and threw home for the out, but the Tigers continued to add runs with two outs on the board. Chad Zurcher was hit by a pitch to load the bases before Jacob Wilson singled to right to score two more runs. Memphis loaded the bases again and the Rebels turned to the bullpen for Mike Mayers down 4-0 and with two outs.

Mayers gave up a single to left on the first batter faced and Memphis held a 6-0 lead. Mayers then got a fly out from the next batter to end the inning, but the Rebels trailed by six runs.

Memphis added to the lead in the fourth inning when Eli Hynes hit a three-run shot to right field to put the Tigers up 9-0.

Ole Miss got on the board in the eighth inning when Austin Sullivan came up with a two-out single to right that scored Zach Kirksey from second and moved Alex Yarbrough to third. Yarbrough then scored on a wild pitch to make it a 9-2 lead for the Tigers.

The Rebels could get nothing more from there, falling to the Tigers to split the season series.

Ole Miss will return to action this weekend with a three-game series against the Georgia Bulldogs at Swayze Field. Friday’s game is set for a 6:30 p.m. first pitch, while Saturday will be at 2 p.m. on SportSouth. Sunday’s game is set for a 1:30 p.m. start.
