Ole Miss Pitching Stands Out in Weekend Scrimmages
Oct. 3, 2015

OXFORD, Miss. -  The Ole Miss baseball team finished its third week of fall intrasquads as Red and Blue each marked a win across the weekend. The bats were swinging hard and the Ole Miss pitching staff began to find its stride.

The Rebel pitchers undoubtedly found success over this weekend's intrasquads. Wyatt Short threw for two innings and allowed just a single hit. Short, along with David Parkinson, Parker Caracci and Andy Pagnozzi, did not allow a run to score in the two scrimmages.

"Parkinson, Short, Caracci and Pagnozzi all pitched extremely well and did not give up any runs," explained head coach Mike Bianco. "Chad Smith gave up a few runs today, but pitched really well today and probably did not deserve to give up any runs. Offensively, Tate Blackman and Kyle Watson also both swung the bats well this weekend."

Sophomore Joe Wainhouse also had a great weekend on offense for the Rebels. Wainhouse belted two home runs, tallying one during each intrasquad and ending the weekend with three RBI. Henri Lartigue joined in on the home run action and ripped his own three-run homer.



On Friday, Cameron Dishon led the way, going 2-for-3 on the day. Dishon also crossed the dish twice, adding to Red's 10 total runs Friday afternoon. Matt Denny, Connor Green and Will Stokes helped to propel Red to victory with fantastic pitching. The three Red pitchers allowed only eight hits on the day in eight innings.

"We continue to swing the bats well, which is a good thing," noted Bianco. "I really thought this was our best weekend of pitching so far. I think collectively we could have played better on defense. Even though we pitched well, we gave up a few runs because we haven't been as clean as we can be."

The Rebels returned on Saturday for their second 8-inning intrasquad of the weekend. This time Blue had the answer and was able to get the win over Red. Despite the Red's loss, the bats were certainly hot. Lartigue knocked a three-run homer and Wainhouse had another hit, sending a Red run across the plate and scoring once as well. Nic Perkins went 2-for-3 on Saturday for Blue and crossed the dish twice in the game.

The Ole Miss baseball team continues to prepare for the 2016 campaign as fall ball marches on. The Rebels will be back next weekend for more Red versus blue action on Friday and Saturday.
