Ole Miss was held to only one run for just the third time this season, moving to 0-3 in such contests.
Junior OF Jordan Henry went 1-for-3 with a walk, stolen base and run scored today. His 56 walks this season are the second-most in school history behind Pat Ball's 59 free passes in 1977. He has already set the school record for steals in a season and now has 38 stolen bases on the year. Henry’s 70 runs scored are second-most in a season in school history behind Chris Coghlan’s 75 in 2006.
By reaching base twice today, Henry reached base in 60-of-63 games this season.
