Ole Miss v. Northern Colorado - Box Score Get Acrobat Reader | Final Stats

OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss softball team posted a pair of shutouts Saturday at the Ole Miss Softball Complex in wins over Buffalo and Northern Colorado, and moved to 3-0 in the Red and Blue Classic.

The Rebels (9-6) opened the day with an 8-0 (6) win over Buffalo, highlighted by a complete game from Carly Hummel and RBI from five different players. Ole Miss then defeated Northern Colorado 2-0 thanks to a two-RBI single by Allison Brown, and a combined shutout in the circle from Lauren Lindsey and Madi Osias.

The Ole Miss defense rose to the occasion to begin the game against Northern Colorado. After the Bears loaded the bases with no outs in the first inning, Ole Miss senior center fielder RT Cantillo caught a fly ball and threw out UNC’s Erica Dick, who had tagged up from third base attempting to score. Sophomore shortstop Haley Culley then fielded a grounder and gunned it over to first base to end the inning with no runners crossing the plate.

The Bears’ defense answered in the third inning when Ole Miss put runners on second and third with two outs, but a phenomenal catch by the Northern Colorado center fielder prevented any runs from going on the board for Ole Miss.

Brown, who entered the game 13-23 (.565) with six runs, six RBI, two doubles, a stolen base and just two strikeouts in the past seven games combined, came through in the clutch for Ole Miss with what would prove to be the game-winning hit in the fifth inning. With the bases loaded and no outs on the board, junior third baseman Allison Brown hit a two-RBI single up the middle to score Cantillo and Jamie Morgan and give the Rebels a 2-0 lead that would prove to be the final score.

It was the third straight game that Ole Miss has shut out its opponent. The Rebels are currently on a five-game winning streak.

Ole Miss will close out the tournament Sunday with games against Saint Louis (1:30 p.m.) and UT Martin (3:45 p.m.). The complete tournament schedule can be found at the Red and Blue Classic Tournament Central page.

Behind a balanced attack in which seven Rebels recorded hits, the Ole Miss softball team defeated visiting Buffalo 8-0 in six innings. Senior pitcher Carly Hummel went the entire game for the Rebels, striking out six batters and allowing three hits.

Ole Miss outhit Buffalo 9-3 in the game and left just four runners on base throughout the game.

The Bulls’ first real opportunity of the game came in the third with runners on first and second and two outs. The Bulls hit a tough grounder just past Brown at third base, but Culley backed her up, fielded the grounder and got the force out to end the inning and the Buffalo threat.

Ole Miss got on the board in the bottom-half of the inning with an RBI single to center field by Culley that brought in junior right fielder Jamie Morgan from second.

The Rebels scored three more runs the next inning thanks to a two-RBI double by freshman second baseman Alyssa Invergo that scored freshman left fielder Miranda Strother and senior catcher Marina Parra. Morgan then brought Invergo home on an RBI single to put the Rebels up 4-0.

Ole Miss took a 5-0 lead in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI single by Strother through the left side. Parra followed Strother with an RBI bunt single down the first-base line. With runners on the corners, Parra and Strother then worked a double steal to perfection to put the Rebels up 7-0.

Ole Miss completed the game with a run-rule victory in the sixth inning with its eighth run. The Rebels loaded the bases with no outs and scored the winning run on a wild pitch by the Bulls.
