OXFORD, Miss. – Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown has led the Ole Miss softball team in runs batted in for much of the season, and Saturday was no different. The Los Alamitos, Calif., native batted in a team-high three runs Saturday afternoon at the Ole Miss Softball Complex, but it wasn’t enough against No. 15 Texas A&M as the Rebels dropped an 8-4 decision to the visiting Aggies.

Brown finished the day going 3-4 at the plate with a home run and three RBI. Brown now has 40 RBI on the season, the third most in program history.

“She’s been our RBI machine all year long,” Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said. “We really like what she’s doing. She wants it that bad. She has a great swing, and even if she gets jammed a little or hits one off the end of the bat, because her swing is so good, she definitely finds holes more often than not.”

Similar to Friday night’s series opener, Texas A&M (36-13, 7-12 Southeastern Conference) opened the scoring in the first inning with a two-run home run to right-center.

Ole Miss (23-30, 3-20 SEC) responded in the bottom half of the inning with a two-run home run of its own by Brown. The home run was the fifth of the season for Brown.

The Rebels then took the lead in the bottom of the second on a fielding error by Texas A&M that allowed junior catcher Marina Parra to come home from third base.

The Aggies tied the game in the top of the third with a solo home run to left field, and took a 7-3 lead in the top of the fifth by scoring four runs on four hits.

After allowing one more run in the top of the sixth, Ole Miss scored one run in the bottom half of the inning with a single through the left side by Brown that scored Parra from third and gave the game its final score of 8-4.

Sunday’s series finale will begin at 1 p.m. CT. The Rebels will recognize their three seniors, Broome, Erinn Jayjohn and Kelly Nolan, prior to the first pitch. It will also be Sundae Sunday with free ice cream available while supplies last.
