GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Ole Miss starting pitcher Kendall Bruning limited the No. 6 nationally-ranked Florida Gators to just three earned runs on six hits in six innings of work, but suffered the complete-game loss as UF downed the Rebels 5-0 in Friday’s series opener at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.
Bruning held Florida (33-4, 13-2 SEC) in check early in the game – allowing just two hits and no runs in the first two innings – until center fielder Michelle Moultire reached on a fielding error by second baseman Corrine Doornberg with one down in the third, moved to second on a passed ball by catcher Marina Parra and then scored on a double to left center by Sami Fagan for the Gator’s first run. Fagan would score later in the frame on a wild pitch byBruning to put UF up 2-0.
Center fielder RT Cantillo led off the Ole Miss (16-19, 3-9 SEC) half of the fourth with a single to right and moved to second after first baseman Londen Ladner walked and was pinch ran for by Jayla Hubbard. Both runners moved into scoring position on freshman Allison Brown’s sac bunt, but UF starting pitcher Hannah Rogers got designated player Erinn Jayjohn to strike out swinging and Parra to pop out to short to end the threat. Cantillo and Jayjohn collected Ole Miss’ only two hits – both singles – of the game.
Florida extended its lead in the fourth with a two-out, two-run single to right from right fielder Kasey Fagan and designated player Bailey Castro added a solo homer to center in the sixth that gave the Gators a 5-0 lead after six.
Bruning (12-10) took the complete-game loss after giving up five runs, three earned, on six hits in six innings. She struck out three and walked one in her 14th complete-game of the season.
Ole Miss and Florida will continue their three-game series tomorrow at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. First pitch is set for 1:30 p.m.
