OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss softball team will return to the friendly confines of the Ole Miss Softball Complex for a midweek game against Louisiana Monroe on Wednesday at 4 p.m. CT.
Wednesday’s game opens a home stretch for the Rebels in which Ole Miss will play nine of its final 11 regular season games in Oxford.
In its last home game April 9, Ole Miss (21-26) was led by junior pitcher Carly Hummel, who threw the fourth no-hitter in program history and struck out 10 Arkansas-Pine Bluff batters in five innings of work.
At the plate, freshman Madi Osias holds a team-high .379 batting average this season. Osias had a fantastic week last week, playing a part in all five of Ole Miss’ runs against Mississippi State on Saturday, and five of the Rebels’ eight runs vs. Arkansas-Pine Bluff on April 9. Osias also pitched 5.2 scoreless innings throughout the week, striking out six.
Among players with at least 60 at bats this season, sophomore third baseman Allison Brown holds a team-best .341 batting average, driving in a team-high 35 RBI and hitting a career-high 15 doubles, the second most in the SEC.
Hummel continues to lead Ole Miss in the circle, striking out a team-high 100 batters in 124.1 innings of work.
