No. 5 Baseball Hosts New Orleans for Kids' Day at Swayze Field
SCOUTING NEW ORLEANS
ON THE RECORD
The Ole Miss staff is 3rd in the nation in team ERA at 2.11. That mark is good for 1st in the conference, and it's the nation's best among Power 5 conferences. The Rebs also enter the week at 3rd in the country and 1st in the SEC in walks per nine innings at 2.49.
The Rebels are No. 7 in the NCAA and No. 2 in the SEC in WHIP at just 1.06. Ole Miss ranks 12th nationally in strikeouts per nine innings at 10.4--good for No. 2 in the conference. Additionally, the Rebels are allowing just seven hits per nine innings, good for 15th in the country and 4th in the SEC.
CRANKING OUT THE HITS
In addition to ranking in the Top 10 in doubles, the Rebels are 18th with 25 home runs. They're also 26th in runs scored and are 16th in slugging percentage at .487.
FEIGL FOR THE WIN
Feigl stifled Tennessee in his first SEC start of the season last week, going 6.1 innings and truly making just one mistake all day, a solo home run that represented the Vols' only run of the game. Feigl allowed just four hits and struck out nine while walking only one. He's gone at least 6.0 innings in each of his five starts in 2018.
Feigl is one of the top players in the nation at hitting the strike zone. He's 17th nationally and third in the SEC in K-to-BB ratio at 11.3. He's also 24th in the country and third in the league in walks-per-nine at just 0.83. Feigl's 1.10 ERA is good for No. 30 in the NCAA and No. 3 in the SEC.
CARACCI WITH THE Ks
Caracci combined with starter James McArthur for a four-hit shutout on Sunday against Tennessee. Caracci went a full three innings, allowing just 2 H, 0 BB while striking out seven to earn his first career save.
Adams was 7-for-11 at the dish last week with an incredible line: .636/1.182/.733. He belted his second-career home run, a leadoff blast to open Game 3 against Tennessee. Adams also ripped two doubles down the
The junior out of Conway, Arkansas, led Ole Miss in nearly every offensive category last week. He's now hitting .378 on the year and slugging .622. Adams has struck out just four times, the lowest total among Rebels with at least 15 starts on the season.
WOOLFOLK LEADING THE PACK
Woolfolk didn't have a save opportunity over the weekend against Tennessee, but he still hasn't allowed a run this season, going 7.2 innings, giving up six hits and walking four. He has struck out seven batters along the way to posting an SEC-leading six saves--good for eighth in the NCAA.
MAN OF THE PEOPLE
The Rebel center fielder is No. 8 in the nation and is tied for first in the SEC with four sacrifice flies on the season. As a result, he boasts 16 RBI, third on the team. Golsan tallied three sacrifice flies last week. Against Little Rock, he drove home
Three Rebels--Nick Fortes (Memphis), Thomas Dillard (Austin Peay) and Chase Cockrell (Eastern Illinois) boast multi-home-run games this season. Ten different Rebels have hit a home run this season, six of whom have hit two or more. Dillard holds the team
The Rebels are also a perfect 5-0 in their customary Sunday powder blue uniforms.
REBS TAKE FIRST SEC SERIES FROM TENNESSEE
The Rebels fell 8-6 in a wild, windy Game 1. Both offenses benefitted from wind-blown pop-ups and fly balls. Tennessee exploded for six runs in the eighth inning to take a commanding 8-2 lead. Ole Miss battled back with four runs in the bottom half, but it was too little, too late in an 8-6 defeat.
Saturday and Sunday, however, were all Ole Miss. The Rebels got another brilliant start out of Brady Feigl, who went 6.1 innings, allowing just four hits and one run to set the foundation for the 7-1 win. Junior second baseman Jacob Adams was 3-for-3 with two doubles and three RBI to fuel the Rebel offense. On Sunday, starter James McArthur and reliever Parker Caracci combined to throw a four-hit shutout as Caracci earned his first career save. Adams blasted his second-career home run to lead off the bottom of the first inning for Ole Miss, and that was all the Rebels needed in a 5-0 win. They added more anyway as Cole Zabowski and Thomas Dillard both went deep to add insurance in the series-clinching victory at Swayze Field.
ROAD REBS TAKE TWO IN ATLANTA
The Rebels were tested vehemently in Game 1 by Georgia State, leaning on a nerve-wracking bases-loaded, no-out save by Dallas Woolfolk to escape with a 5-3 win. The Panthers jumped on the board early with two runs in the second. Ole Miss used a Nick Fortes home run, as well as a combined four hits and three RBI by Thomas Dillard and Grae Kessinger to gain the edge. In addition to Woolfolk's save, the Rebels got a great start out of Houston Roth (5.0 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K) and a perfect two innings of relief from Will Ethridge.
In contrast, Game 2 was never close. The Rebels tacked on four runs in the first inning, never looked back and never stopped scoring. Cole Zabowski smashed his third home run of the year, and Tim Elko hit the first of his career. Zabowski and Ryan Olenek each tallied three-hit days, while Zabowski, Elko, Cockrell, Fortes
