OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss softball team could not get its offense rolling against No. 2 Tennessee, and lost 9-1 (5) in the series finale Sunday. The Ole Miss Softball Complex was filled again, as 1,061 fans were in attendance. It was the second straight day over 1,000 fans filled the complex.
Freshman right fielder Bri Payne provided the offense for the Rebels on the gorgeous, sunny Sunday afternoon, recording a stand-up RBI double that hit just below the top of the left-center field wall.
The Lady Vols (42-6, 15-3 Southeastern Conference) got on the board in the top of the first inning with four runs on four hits and one Rebel error.
Ole Miss (22-29, 2-19 SEC) scored one run in the bottom of the second on Payne’s RBI double. Payne’s stand-up double scored freshman shortstop Haley Culley from first base.
Tennessee scored three runs in the top of the third and two more runs in the top of the fourth to take a 9-1 lead in the game that would prove to be the final score.
Ole Miss finished with four hits by four different players, including singles from junior outfielder RT Cantillo and freshman second baseman Melina Preciado.
The Rebels will play again Wednesday when they hit the road for the final time this season for a doubleheader at Louisiana Tech in Ruston, La. Game one of the doubleheader will begin at 4 p.m. CT, and the game two is scheduled for a 6 p.m. first pitch.
