COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Ole Miss softball bats couldn’t get going Saturday on a sunny day in Columbia, Mo., and the Rebels dropped the series finale at No. 13 Missouri, 9-1 (6).
The Rebels scored one run in the sixth inning, but it was too late against one of the top hitting teams in the Southeastern Conference.
Missouri (35-12, 12-6 SEC) got on the board in the second inning on a solo home run by designated player Natalie Fleming, and tacked on one more run in the third with an RBI groundout.
In the fourth, Missouri took a 4-0 lead by scoring two runs on a fielder’s choice and errant throw with the bases loaded. An RBI single to center field by shortstop Corrin Genovese in the fifth inning then gave Missouri a 5-0 lead.
Ole Miss (22-25, 3-15 SEC) got on the board in the sixth on a sacrifice fly by junior third baseman Allison Brown deep to left field that allowed senior outfielder RT Cantillo to score her 32nd run of the year and the 123rd run of her career. Cantillo is now one run behind DeDe Justice (2002-05) for second in program history.
The Tigers responded with a two-RBI single to right field in the bottom of the sixth, followed by an RBI triple off the right field wall and a sacrifice fly to end the game.
The Rebels will play again Friday when they open a three-game home series vs. LSU. Ole Miss will recognize its six seniors in the series with two seniors honored prior to the start of each game. Cantillo and Shelby Jo Fenter will be recognized prior to Friday’s game, Carly Hummel and Londen Ladner will go Saturday and Natalie Nimmo and Marina Parra will be honored prior to the finale Sunday.
