OXFORD, Miss. - Coming off a 5-0 weekend that saw the Ole Miss softball team claim the Red & Blue Classic title, the Rebels (10-8) will now host Arkansas-Pine Bluff in a doubleheader Wednesday at the Ole Miss Softball Complex at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. CT.

Ole Miss won four one-run games over the weekend, including two thrilling comeback wins in extra innings that saw the Rebels erase deficits of four and five runs. Ole Miss is 2-0 all-time against Arkansas-Pine Bluff, sweeping the Golden Lions last season in a doubleheader, 9-0 (5) and 10-0 (5).

"We have to continue to get better," Ole Miss softball head coach Windy Thees said. "We did some good things this weekend, and showed some real heart and determination in each of those five games. Now we want to build on those good things, improve on the things we didn't do well, and get two good results Wednesday."

It will be Dollar Wednesday at the Ole Miss Softball Complex against the Golden Lions, with hotdogs and popcorn at the concession stand sold for $1. In addition to Dollar Wednesday, the first 100 fans at the park will receive a free ticket to the men's basketball game against Texas A&M later that night (8 p.m. CT).

For the season, Lauren Lindsey leads the Rebels with a .478 batting average, and has a hit in nine of her last 17 at bats, including three doubles. Junior center fielder RT Cantillo and sophomore Allison Brown have continued their consistent play at the plate. Cantillo is batting .417 with 20 hits, 13 runs scored and a team-high tying 14 RBI. Brown is hitting .375, and leads the team in hits (21) and runs (14), while also having 14 RBI.

Senior left fielder Brittany Broome had a great Red & Blue Classic, batting .563 with a team-high nine hits and six runs scored. In the circle, Carly Hummel and Shelby Jo Fenter each picked up two wins, while Erinn Jayjohn recorded a win and her first save of the season.
