Box Score

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Ole Miss jumped out to an early lead in the top of the first over No. 6 Tennessee and looked for its second win over a ranked team in as many games, but could not hold the advantage as the Rebels fell 5-1 to the Lady Vols on Friday night in Knoxville.

Ole Miss (17-30, 4-19 SEC) took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first after leadoff batter Corrine Doornberg walked to start the game and later advanced to third with two outs after UT starting pitcher Ellen Renfroe walked the bases loaded. Renfroe then uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Doornberg to score from third and give Ole Miss the lead.

Tennessee (42-9, 20-6 SEC) tied the game in the bottom of the third after left fielder Melissa Davin singled to start the inning, stole second, moved to third on a passed ball by catcher Marina Parra and scored on leadoff hitter Raven Chavanne’s two-out infield single. The Lady Vols took a 3-1 lead on shortstop Madison Shippman’s two-run double down the line in right later in the frame.

Freshman Dallas Hardin walked to start the Ole Miss fifth, and with two down Doornberg rolled a grounder to shortstop Madison Shippman, whose throw drew the first baseman off the bag and allowed both runners to move into scoring position. Left fielder Brittany Broome then earned a full-count walk to load the bases, but junior Ivy Renfroe entered the game in relief of her sister and got shortstop Allison Brown to pop out to second to strand all three Rebels.

Second baseman Lauren Gibson extended the UT lead in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run single that bounced off Ole Miss second baseman Corrine Doornberg into right field.

Bruning (13-16) started and took the complete-game loss after allowing five runs, all earned, on eight hits in six innings.

Ole Miss and Tennessee will continue the weekend series tomorrow at Lee Stadium in Knoxville. First pitch is set for noon and the game will be televised by SportSouth.
