OXFORD, Miss. – Coming off a dramatic 11-9 win over Auburn on the road Sunday afternoon, the Ole Miss softball team (20-23, 2-13 Southeastern Conference) will now turn its attention to Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The Rebels will face the Lady Lions in a midweek tilt Tuesday at 5 p.m. CT at the Ole Miss Softball Complex.
Ole Miss and UAPB have met twice this season already, with the Rebels sweeping the Lady Lions 4-0 and 16-0 (5) in a doubleheader Feb. 27. Tuesday’s game was a late addition to the Rebels’ schedule after their game against Samford on April 2 was canceled.
Senior outfielder Brittany Broome went a combined 6-7 in the Rebels’ two previous games against Arkansas-Pine Bluff this season, scoring four runs and stealing five bases. Freshman shortstop Haley Culley accumulated four hits on seven at-bats, and junior pitchers Shelby Jo Fenter and Carly Hummel each threw complete game shutouts, allowing a combined three hits.
Fans in attendance Tuesday will be able to enter a raffle to win a digital camera.
Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown, fresh off a 4-4 performance Sunday at Auburn in which she batted in a career-high five RBI and scored a career-high tying three runs, leads the Rebels at the plate with a .333 batting average, including an SEC-leading 14 doubles and a team-high 35 RBI.
Broome stole two bases at Auburn last weekend, giving her a season total of 28, a new Ole Miss single season record. Broome’s 70 career stolen bases are also the most in Rebels history.
Hummel continues to lead Ole Miss in the circle, pitching a team-high 110.1 innings this season. Hummel picked up the win Sunday in what proved to be a true team effort as four pitchers were used in the victory. The Bakersfield, Calif., native came in to start the bottom of the sixth against the Tigers with the score tied 9-9, and allowed just one hit and zero runs in the final two innings against the hot Auburn bats.
