Ole Miss Loses 6-1 To No. 8 Missouri
Allison Brown went 2-3 at the plate with an RBI single.

March 16, 2013

Box Score

OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss softball team jumped out to a nice start Saturday afternoon vs. No. 8 Missouri, but could not hold its 1-0 lead and fell 6-1 to the Tigers at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.

“We made a lot of adjustments from yesterday to today that I liked,” Ole Miss softball head coach Windy Thees said. “(Missouri pitcher Chelsea Thomas) didn’t strike out a lot of us at the plate and we were putting the bat on the ball – we may need to do it a little bit harder, but she’s a great pitcher. Our kids’ energy level was so much better today.”

Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown led the Rebels (18-14, 1-4 Southeastern Conference) at the plate with a 2-3 performance that included her team-leading 25th RBI of the season.

Defensively, freshman shortstop Haley Culley made six assists for the Rebels, and Brown made three of her own as junior first baseman Londen Ladner had 11 putouts.

Ole Miss jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when RT Cantillo led off with a stand up double to the right field wall on the second pitch of the game. Brittany Broome then advanced Cantillo to third with a sacrifice bunt, followed by Brown’s RBI single through the left side.

Missouri (14-2, 3-1 SEC) tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the third with back-to-back doubles to left-center field, and later broke it open in the fifth with four runs on four hits, including three doubles, to take a 5-1 lead.

“We have to avoid the one bad inning, and we had one bad inning,” Thees said. “That kind of put us down.”

Missouri scored one more run in the top of the sixth on a fielder’s choice to third that gave the Tigers their 6-1 lead.

Sunday’s series finale is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. CT, and will be the first Sundae Sunday at the Ole Miss Softball Complex, as sundaes will be available for free at the concession stand while supplies last. Also on Sunday, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, fans will receive green eye black, and a ‘Kiss Me I’m a Rebel’ button.
