KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Senior Kendall Bruning held the No. 6 nationally-ranked Tennessee Lady Vols to no earned runs, but the Rebels committed three errors that led to two unearned runs as Ole Miss dropped Sunday’s series 2-1 at Tennessee.
Tennessee took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first on left fielder Melissa Davin’s two-out, bases-loaded infield single. The inning was aided by a two-out fielding error by second baseman Corrine Doornberg that allowed UT to continue the frame.
Ole Miss (17-32, 4-21 SEC) answered back in the top of the third after Brittany Broome walked with one down in the frame and moved to third on shortstop Allison Brown’s single to center. First baseman Londen Ladner reached on a fielder’s choice that moved Brown to second, but Broome was thrown out at home for the second out. However, third baseman Cali Overbeck knocked a clutch RBI single up the middle that scored Brown and tied the game at one.
The Lady Vols (43-9, 22-6 SEC) regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth after catcher Ashley Andrews reached on a fielding error by shortstop Allison Brown and moved to second on a Tory Lewis infield single. Both runners moved into scoring position on a sac bunt, and after a pop out to third by Kat Dotson, Bruning was attempting to intentionally walk UT shortstop Madison Shipman, but catcher Marina Parra dropped the throw and allowed Andrews to score an unearned run from third.
Bruning (13-17) held UT in check for the rest of the game and suffered the hard-luck loss after allowing two runs, one earned, on six hits in six innings of work.
Ole Miss will return home on Tuesday when the Rebels host Arkansas-Pine Bluff for a double header beginning at 5 p.m.
