Feb. 28, 2014
SAN DIEGO - The Ole Miss softball team's opening two games in the San Diego Classic I on Friday against BYU and tournament host San Diego State have been canceled due to rain. A new schedule for Saturday has been released.
Ole Miss will now play Grand Canyon University on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. CT, followed by a game against BYU at 6:00 p.m. CT. Both games will be played at the San Diego State Softball Stadium. Sunday's schedule is still to be determined based on whether there are further cancelations.
The Rebels were originally scheduled to play BYU and San Diego State on Friday, followed by Fresno State and Utah State on Saturday and Colorado State on Sunday.
Ole Miss (11-6) entered the weekend after outscoring its opponents 20-5 (1.03 ERA) at the Ole Miss Softball Complex in the Red and Blue Classic on Feb. 21-23, highlighted by a stretch of 25 consecutive innings where the Rebels held their opponents scoreless.
Ole Miss senior outfielder RT Cantillo has led the Rebels at the plate. Cantillo entered the weekend pacing the Southeastern Conference with 31 hits, and was second in the league with a .525 batting average. The Santa Ana, Calif., native has recorded a hit in 15 of Ole Miss' 17 games this season, including 10 games with multiple hits. She also entered this weekend's tournament riding a seven-game hitting streak, which is her second longest streak of the year.
Junior third baseman Allison Brown, who hails from Los Alamitos, Calif., went on an 11-game hitting streak earlier this season (Feb. 14-23), which is the third longest streak in program history. Brown is batting .375 this year with a team-high tying 10 RBI.
In the circle, senior pitcher Shelby Jo Fenter (5-1) has been on a tear. Fenter, who has logged 35.1 innings, has a team-best 1.19 ERA and a team-high 42 strikeouts, the seventh most in the SEC.
Fellow senior pitcher Carly Hummel (3-2), a Bakersfield, Calif., native, is coming off a strong week in which she won two games and earned her first two saves of her career with the Rebels. Hummel currently holds a 2.29 ERA in 33.2 innings of work with 31 strikeouts.
