OXFORD, Miss. - Lindsey Perry gave up two runs and struck out six over 4.1 innings as Ole Miss earned a 4-2 win over Southeast Missouri State to close out the 2011 Red and Blue Classic on Sunday at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.

Ole Miss (5-11) got RBIs from four different players - Corrine Doornberg, Brittany Broome, Londen Ladner and Cali Overbeck - and picked up its second win of the tournament.

Perry went 4.1 innings in the circle, scattering five hits and walking only one to improve to 3-3 on the year. Kendall Bruning pitched 2.2 scoreless innings of relief and picked up her first save of the year.

"Our pitchers did a good job today and it was nice to get a win to close out the tournament," Rebel head coach Missy Dickerson said. "It's still a work in progress because we are so young. We need to remember to stay mentally strong and keep our focus. We can keep building from wins, even if they may be ugly wins."

Erinn Jayjohn went 2-for-3 at the plate to collect the most hits for a Rebel on Sunday.

After retiring the side in order in the top of the first, the Rebels got on the board early and in exciting fashion in the bottom of the frame. After a Doornberg groundout, Broome laced a ball past a diving Red Hawk left fielder and into the corner. Perhaps the Rebels' fastest player, Broome sprinted around the bases for an inside-the-park home run and a 1-0 Ole Miss lead.

Perry continued to mow down Southeast Missouri hitters, and Ole Miss added another run in the bottom of the third on Ladner's RBI single to left field that scored Doornberg.

Southeast Missouri (3-9) scored one run in the fourth inning and another in the fifth to make a game of it, but Ole Miss never surrendered the lead. With runners on first and third in the bottom of the fourth frame, Doornberg hit into a fielder's choice that scored Amanda Hutcheson.

For good measure, Ole Miss added its fourth and final run in the bottom of the fifth inning when Overbeck blasted her second home run of the year over the wall in left-centerfield.

"Cali hit the ball well this weekend," Dickerson said. "She was our sparkplug offensively. The last two games we did a better job of getting on base and pushing runs through."

Ole Miss returns to action on Tuesday with a home doubleheader against Alcorn State. First pitch of game one is scheduled for 2 p.m., with the next game to follow immediately after.
