OXFORD, Miss. – Freshman Allison Brown went 2-for-3 at the plate with a home run and three RBI as the Rebels mounted a sixth-inning comeback, but it wasn’t enough as Ole Miss fell 8-4 to No. 11 Georgia on Friday night.

Trailing 8-2 with one out in the bottom of the sixth, sophomore RT Cantillo was hit by a pitch and moved to third on a Londen Ladner single to give Ole Miss (13-13, 2-4 SEC) runners on the corners. Brown then laced a single to first base that knocked in Cantillo. Starting pitcher Kendall Bruning smashed a double to left center to plate pinch runner Jayla Hubbard and catcher Marina Parra walked to load the bases for the Rebels. However, Bulldog starting pitcher Erin Arevalo got pinch hitter Natalie Nimmo to strike out swinging and third baseman Cali Overbeck to pop out to end the Rebel threat.

Bulldog catcher Kristyn Sandberg got Georgia (25-5, 5-2 SEC) on the scoreboard in the top of the second with a leadoff solo home run to left center. Georgia added to its lead in the fourth inning with five runs highlighted by a two-run single from designated player Ashley Razey and RBI singles from right fielder Christine Olney, third baseman Gracie Goulder and center fielder Macie Couey that put the Bulldogs up 6-0.

Brown responded back for Ole Miss in the bottom of the fourth with a two-run home run to left center that plated Cantillo and cut the UGA lead to 6-2. It was Brown’s fourth long ball of the season and the third in her last six games. Razy added a two-run homer for the Bulldogs in the fifth that extended the Georgia lead to 8-2.

Bruning (11-5) took the loss after giving up eight runs, seven earned, on seven hits in seven innings. She struck out eight and walked four in the complete-game effort.

Ole Miss and Georgia will continue their three-game set tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.
