Box Score - Game OneBox Score - Game Two

OXFORD, Miss. - Senior Kendall Bruning held Kentucky to just five hits in a complete-game effort and center fielder RT Cantillo hit an inside-the-park homer, but Ole Miss dropped game one of a double header 3-1 to the Wildcats on Wednesday at the Ole Miss Softball Complex. The Rebels fell 8-0 to the Wildcats in game two.

Cantillo got the Rebels on the scoreboard in the bottom of the first after she laced the ball just inside the right field line for a solo inside-the-park homer. It was Cantillo's third homer of the season and first career inside-the-park job.

Bruning held the Wildcats in check for the first 4.2 innings allowing just one hit before Kentucky struck back in the top of the fifth with two-out and nobody on after third baseman Brittany Cervantes doubled to left center and then scored on shortstop Kara Dill's single to left. Dill would score later in the frame on a Lauren Cumbless single to left to give the Wildcats a 2-1 lead. Right fielder Alice O'Brien added an RBI single in the top of the seventh that extended Kentucky's lead to 3-1.

Bruning (12-13) took the loss after giving up three runs, two earned, on just five hits in seven innings of work. She struck out six in her 16th complete-game of the year.

Next up, Ole Miss will travel to Baton Rouge for a three-game series at LSU beginning on Friday.

Game Two

Kentucky scored three early runs and did not look back as Ole Miss fell 8-0 to the Wildcats in game two on Wednesday.

The Wildcats struck for the three runs in the top of the first on RBI singles from first baseman Lauren Cumbess, catcher Griffin Joiner and right fielder Alice O'Brien.  Kentucky added two more runs in the second highlight by a solo home run from third baseman Brittany Cervantes to take a 5-0 lead.

Kentucky added three more runs in the fourth aided by a passed ball, a wild pitch and a pair of Ole Miss errors. The frame was highlighted by an RBI double from Joiner.

Ole Miss threatened in the third after leadoff batter Corrine Doornberg singled to center with one down in the inning and moved to third on RT Cantillo's two-out single to right. Cantillo then stole second to put two runners in scoring position, but first baseman Londen Lander grounded out to third to end the frame. Doornberg finished the game 2-for-3 at the plate, while Cantillo added a hit and a stolen base.

Junior Erinn Jayjohn (3-11) gave up five runs on eight hits in two-plus innings in the loss. Freshman Lauren Lindsey entered in relief in the third and pitched 2.1innings giving up one hit and three runs. Senior Kelly Chandler pitched final two-thirds of an inning.
