Game Two Box Score

ATHENS, Ga. – The long ball was in play Saturday at Jack Turner Stadium in Athens, Ga., as the Ole Miss softball team hit five home runs total in its doubleheader at No. 23 Georgia, but it wasn’t enough to top the Bulldogs and their hot bats. The Rebels fell 14-5 in game one, and 12-4 in game two to move to 19-18 on the season and 1-8 in Southeastern Conference play.

The two teams together hit eight home runs in the second game of the doubleheader, and 12 home runs in the two games combined Saturday. For the series, Ole Miss and Georgia (25-7, 6-0 SEC) combined to hit 15 home runs. Ole Miss scored each of its four runs in game two Saturday on solo shots.

Senior Erinn Jayjohn, who entered Saturday’s series against Georgia with two home runs in her career, blasted a pair of home runs – one in each game – Saturday to left field.

Georgia opened the first inning of game two with a pair of solo home runs to take a 2-0 lead.

Jayjohn cut Ole Miss’ deficit in half with a blast to left field that hit the top of the Georgia scoreboard.

Freshman shortstop Haley Culley then tied the game one inning later with a solo home run that went just left of the right field pole. It was Culley’s first home run of the season.

Georgia regained the lead in the bottom half of the inning with five runs on four hits, including one solo home run and one three-run home run.

Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown answered in the top of the sixth with a solo home run to center field, followed by a screaming shot by junior first baseman Londen Ladner to left field that cut the Rebels’ deficit to three at 7-4.

Georgia ended the game in the bottom of the sixth with five runs on three hits to win 12-4.

The Rebels have a lighter schedule this week with no games until Friday when they open a three-game series against No. 3 Florida at the Ole Miss Softball Complex. First pitch Friday is scheduled for 6 p.m. CT, while Saturday’s game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. CT and the series finale Sunday will begin at 1 p.m. CT.

As it is for each home SEC series, Saturday will be Crawfish Saturday, with 100 pounds of free crawfish available for fans in the outfield, and Sunday will be Sundae Sunday, with free sundaes at the concession stand while supplies last.

Four-Run First Not Enough For Rebels In Game One


 

 

Game One Box Score

ATHENS, Ga. – A four-run first inning by Ole Miss was not enough against the red-hot bats of No. 23 Georgia, as the Rebels lost 14-5 to the Bulldogs in game one of the two teams’ doubleheader Saturday at Jack Turner Stadium in Athens, Ga.

The Rebels scored five runs on six hits in game one Saturday, including a towering home run by Jayjohn in the first inning, her first of the season.

Ole Miss got off to a great start in the first game of the day, scoring four runs on four hits in the top of the first. Senior left fielder Brittany Broome started things off for the Rebels with a single through the left side. After Brown walked, Ladner hit a sharp single down the right field line to score Broome from second and advance Brown to third base. Jayjohn then blasted a three-run home run over the Georgia scoreboard in left field to give the Rebels a 4-0 lead.

The Bulldogs responded in the bottom half of the inning with nine runs of their own on four hits.

Georgia scored one run in the bottom of the third on a solo home run to right-center, and another in the bottom of the fourth on an RBI double to right-center to take an 11-4 lead.

After Broome reached first on a walk to start the fifth for the Rebels, Brown hit a double down the left field line to advance Broome to third. It was Brown’s SEC-leading 14th double of the season. Broome scored and Brown advanced to third on a fielder’s choice to cut the Georgia deficit to six.

Georgia then closed out the game in the bottom of the fifth with a solo home run and a two-run home run to win 14-5.
