Ole Miss at Florida - Box Score Get Acrobat Reader | Final Stats

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Ole Miss senior pitcher Carly Hummel had another strong performance Sunday, but the Rebel bats couldn’t bring runners home and Ole Miss dropped the rubbermatch at No. 1 Florida 2-0.

Hummel, who has now thrown three consecutive complete games, struck out three batters in the loss, her first since Feb. 14. She finishes the long, arduous week with a 2-1 record and 27 strikeouts in 20 innings of work with a 0.70 ERA.

“We showed we can play with anybody in the country this week,” Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said. “Outside of two innings Saturday, we were right there with the No. 1 ranked team in the country. Carly pitched another great game today we just couldn’t get the runs across. We’ve said all year that we want more, and if we continue to play like this and get after it in practice we’ll be able to do more than we’ve ever done before.”

Hummel and Florida starting pitcher Delanie Gourley just about mirrored each other in the opening three innings, as each pitcher faced 11 batters, walked one batter and gave up one hit.

Junior third baseman Allison Brown tried to spark the Rebels’ offense in the fourth inning with a lead-off double to the fence in center field, but Ole Miss couldn’t bring her around further.

The Gators got on the board in the bottom-half of the inning with a solo home run to center field by third baseman Stephanie Tofft. It was the first run allowed by Hummel in her last 26.0 innings pitched.

Florida led off the bottom of the fifth with a home run to right field, and followed it with back-to-back singles. After a foul out on a bunt attempt and a fly out to left field, Hummel got Tofft to pop up to Rebels’ second baseman Alyssa Invergo to escape further damage.

Ole Miss could not get its bats going though against a strong performance from Gourley, and lost 2-0.

Ole Miss will play again Wednesday when it travels south to Monroe, La., for a doubleheader against ULM at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. CT.
