Box Score

BATON ROUGE, La. – Senior Kendall Bruning scattered just four runs and five hits in six inning of work, but the Ole Miss offense stranded six runners, including four in scoring position, as the Rebels fell 4-0 to No. 23 LSU in Friday’s series opener at Tiger Park.

Ole Miss (16-27, 3-17 SEC) leadoff batter Corrine Doornberg reached on a throwing error by Tiger third baseman Tammy Wray to start the game and stole second. After Brittany Broome struck out swinging, sophomore RT Cantillo earned a full-count walk and first baseman Londen Ladner grounded out to short to move both runners into scoring position, but freshman shortstop Allison Brown struck out swinging to end the threat.

Bruning retired the first three hitters in the first in order, including two by strikeout, before issuing an illegal-pitch walk to shortstop Juliana Santos to start the second inning. Santos then moved to second on a sac bunt and third on a ground out before Wray guided a two-out single up the middle to plate Santos and give the Tigers a 1-0 lead.

LSU (31-14, 12-6 SEC) extended its lead in the fifth on an RBI bloop single to center from left fielder Ashley Langoni and an RBI sac fly from Santos that put the Tigers up 3-0 after five. Catcher Morgan Russell tacked on an RBI single up the middle in the sixth for the Tigers’ final run of the game.

Ole Miss threatened again in the sixth after left fielder Brittany Broome reached on an infield single to start inning and moved to second after Cantillo was hit by a pitch. However, Ladner struck out swinging and Brown hit into a 1-5-3 double play to end the frame. Cantillo reached base in all three plate appearances on two walks and a hit by pitch.

Bruning (12-14) took the loss in her 17th complete game of the season after allowing just four runs on five hits. She struck out two and walked three in six innings of work.

The Rebels and the Tigers will continue their three-game series tomorrow at Tiger Park. First pitch is set for 6 p.m. and the game will be televised by Cox Sports.
