Box Score

OXFORD, Miss.

 The Ole Miss defense committed three errors that led to two unearned runs and the Rebel bats left six runners on base, as the Rebels dropped Tuesday night’s game 4-1 to Mississippi Valley State at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.

Ole Miss (17-29) threatened in the first after leadoff batter Corrine Doornberg reached on a bunt single to start the frame and moved to second on a throwing error by Valley third baseman Kayla Mercado. With one out, shortstop Allison Brown singled to left and then stole second to put runners on second and third. After first baseman Londen Ladner walked to load the bases, starting pitcher Kendall Bruning struck out swinging and catcher Marina Parra popped out to short to strand all the runners.

The Delta Devilettes (27-17) grabbed a 3-0 in the top of the third with three runs aided by a pair of Ole Miss errors. Bruning walked the first two batters of the inning and shortstop Allison Brown booted a grounder to load the bases. After a fielder’s choice, designated player Nichole Burr singled to left to plate one run and left fielder Brittany Broome’s errant throw allowed another run to score.

Mississippi Valley added another run in the fifth after third baseman Cali Overbeck booted a ground ball to start the frame and Burr had an RBI single later in the frame that put MVSU up 4-0.

The Rebels responded in the bottom of the fifth after Doornberg earned a two-out, bases-empty walk and Broome followed with an RBI triple to left center that cut the deficit to 4-1.

Ole Miss threatened in the bottom of the seventh after freshman Jenna Hollenkamp led off the inning with a single up the middle and moved to second on a Dallas Hardin sac bunt. However, Natalie Nimmo struck out swinging and Doornberg struck out looking to end the game.

Bruning (13-15) suffered the loss after giving up four runs, two earned, on five hits in five innings of work. She struck out five and walked two. Erinn Jayjohn entered in relief to start the sixth and pitched a perfect final two innings.

The Rebels will travel to Knoxville, Tenn. this weekend to face the No. 6-nationally ranked Tennessee Lady Vols in a three-game series beginning on Friday. The first two games will be televised on Fox SportSouth, while Sunday’s series finale will be shown on Fox Sports Net South.
