OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss senior Kendall Bruning held the No. 11-nationally ranked Georgia Bulldogs hitless for 4.2 innings and allowed just six hits over six-plus innings of work, but the Rebels dropped Sunday's series finale 8-0 after holding the Bulldogs to just one run over the first six innings.
Ole Miss threatened early in the first inning after center fielder RT Cantillo and first baseman Londen Ladner each singled with two down, but UGA starting pitcher Erin Arevalo got shortstop Allison Brown to strike out swinging to end the frame. The Rebels got two more runners on with two outs in the third thanks to a walk and a hit by pitch, but Ladner grounded out to short to strand both runners again.
After holding Georgia hitless for 4.2 innings, Bruning gave up an infield single to shortstop to center fielder Macie Couey to break up her no-hit bid. Third baseman Gracie Goulder then walked and right fielder Tess Sito singled to short again to load the bases with two down. Bruning walked second baseman Ashley Pauly on a 3-2 count to bring Couey home for the Bulldogs' first run of the game, but retired catcher Kristyn Sandberg on a grounder back to the circle to leave the bases loaded.
The Bulldogs opened up the game in the top of the seventh with seven runs thanks to four walks, two Rebel errors and a hit batter. Sandberg highlighted the inning with a two-run double to left center, while Sito added an RBI triple to right center.
Bruning (11-7) suffered the hard-luck loss after scattering six hits over 6.2 innings. She allowed three earned runs and struck out two. Junior Erinn Jayjohn picked up the final out in relief.
Next up, Ole Miss will travel to Ridgeland, Miss. on Tuesday for a doubleheader against Jackson State at 3:30 p.m. and Southern Miss at 6 p.m. Both games will take place at Freedom Ridge Park.
