CHARLESTON, S.C. – Playing under sunny skies and blustery winds at Patriots Point in Charleston, S.C., on Saturday, the Ole Miss softball team dropped a 3-0 decision to the DePaul Blue Demons.

Senior outfielder RT Cantillo extended her hitting streak to seven games, and junior third baseman Allison Brown went 2-3, her first multi-hit game of the season, but Ole Miss (3-5) left seven runners on base and faced a strong performance from DePaul pitcher Kirsten Verdun.

“We faced a very good pitcher who mixed it up on us today,” Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said. “We couldn’t get the sweet spot on the ball, so we have to come out this afternoon and just hit and score more runs. That’s the difference right now for us.”

Ole Miss sophomore pitcher Madi Osias started for the Rebels and went 4.1 innings, giving up three runs and striking out four. Junior Lauren Lindsey came in relief and gave up two hits and no runs in 1.2 innings of work.

DePaul (5-3) got on the board in the bottom of the third on an RBI single up the middle that brought its runner home from second base.

The Blue Demons scored two more runs in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI single through the right side, and a fielder’s choice with the bases loaded to extend their lead to 5-0, which proved to be the final score.

Ole Miss will play its second game of the day at 5:00 p.m. CT against Western Carolina. The Rebels close out play at the College of Charleston Classic on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. CT against tournament-host College of Charleston.
