OXFORD, Miss. – Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown hit her team-high 16th double of the season, setting a new single season program record, but Ole Miss fell 5-1 to No. 15 Texas A&M on Sunday afternoon at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.
“It’s a challenge to play,” said Ole Miss assistant coach Mike Perniciaro about playing on Senior Day. “It’s an emotional game for all the seniors and for everybody else as well. It’s tough to get up sometimes. Our seniors have shown some great leadership and we appreciate all the work they’ve put in over the last four years.”
Brown’s double in the bottom of the first highlighted her day at the plate. The Los Alamitos, Calif., native hit .545 (6-11) for the series with one double, one home run, three RBI and a slugging percentage of .909.
After a one-two-three inning in the top of the first, Texas A&M scored two runs one inning later off a two-run double that hit off the top of the left field wall.
Ole Miss (23-31, 3-21 Southeastern Conference) cut its deficit in half with an RBI ground out by junior first baseman Londen Ladner that scored junior center fielder RT Cantillo from third.
Texas A&M (37-13, 8-12 SEC) produced one run each in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to win the series’ rubber match 5-1.
The Rebels will close out their season Wednesday in a doubleheader vs. Alcorn State. Game one will begin at 4 p.m. CT, and the season finale will start at 6 p.m. CT.
“We still have a challenge in front of us,” Perniciaro said. “We still have two games left to play and we’re going to come out hard and battle. I’m looking forward to that.”
It will be Dollar Wednesday at the Ole Miss Softball Complex, as hotdogs and popcorn will be sold for $1 at the concession stand located behind the first base dugout.
