Box Score

RIDGELAND, Miss. – Junior Erinn Jayjohn scattered six hits and allowed just one earned run in seven innings of  work to earn her first career complete-game victory, as Ole Miss downed instate foe Southern Miss 5-3 on Tuesday at Freedom Ridge Park.

The Justin, Texas native needed just 109 pitches to shut down the Golden Eagle bats, as she struck out four and walked just one in career-best seven innings pitched.

The Rebels grabbed a 1-0 in the bottom of the first after RT Cantillo was hit by a pitch with two down and nobody on, stole second and then scored on an infield single from first baseman Londen Ladner.

Jayjohn aided her own cause with a double to the wall in left to lead off the Rebel half of the second and moved to third on a Marina Parra sacrifice bunt. Right fielder Amanda Hutcheson then poked a single through the left side of the infield to plate Jayjohn and put Ole Miss up 2-0. Hutcheson then stole second and third and later scored on a booted ground ball from leadoff hitter Corrine Doornberg. Brittany Broome and Cantillo both reached on an infield singles to load the bases for Ladner, but she flew out to right to end the frame.

Southern Miss loaded the bases with no outs in the fifth on a hit by pitch, a single to center and a swinging bunt single from second baseman Carissa Turang. Britney Dinelt flew out to short center for the first out of the frame, but the Golden Eagle third baseman Channell Thurman had an RBI groundout to short that plated the first run for USM. However, Jayjohn settled in and  got pinch hitter Caylie Harman to strike out swinging on three pitches to strand both runners in scoring position and preserve the 3-1 Rebel lead.

Ladner doubled down the right field line with one out in the bottom of the fifth and was pinch ran for by Dallas Hardin, who moved to third after Allison Brown reached on an infield single to shortstop. Jayjohn then drilled a sac fly to the wall in left that scored Hardin. Parra capped the frame with an RBI double to right center that scored Brown and put the Rebels up 5-1 after five.

Southern Miss scored two unearned runs in the top of the seventh, aided by two Ole Miss errors, but Jayjohn got first baseman Taylor Brown to ground out with the bases loaded to end the game.

 Ole Miss will return home this weekend as the Rebels welcome No. 24 Auburn to Oxford for a three-game SEC series beginning on Friday.

Game One

Box Score

The Ole Miss bats couldn’t come alive in game one at Freedom Ridge Park, as the Rebels managed just three hits and fell 7-2 to Jackson State in Ridgeland.

The Tigers grabbed a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first after leadoff batter Wendi Reed walked, stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch by Ole Miss starter Kendall Bruning and scored on RBI single to right by third baseman Sabeana Romero. Jackson State added two more runs in the second on a pair of RBI singles up the middle from designated player Tahlisa Blosser and Reed to go up 3-0 and Romero knocked another run on an RBI through the right side of the infield in the third that put Jackson State up 4-0.

Ole Miss designated player Erinn Jayjohn reached on a booted grounder to start the top of the fifth inning and was pinch ran for by Jayla Hubbard, who stole second. After Cali Oerbeck and Amanda Hutcheson both lined out to short for the first two outs, catcher Marina Parra rolled a grounder to third baseman Sabeana Romero, whose errant throw pulled first baseman Felicia Wilson off the bag and allowed Hubbard to score from second for the Rebels’ first run. Leadoff batter Corrine Doornberg then laid down a bunt single, Bruning was hit by a pitch to load the bases and center fielder RT Cantillo earned a full-count walk to bring Parra home and cut the Tiger lead to 4-2.

Tiger center fielder Tayler Nave blooped a bases-loaded triple down the line in right in the bottom of the sixth that plated all three JSU runners and extended the lead to 7-2.

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