OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss softball will continue its five-game conference home stand on Wednesday when the Rebels welcome the Kentucky Wildcats to Oxford for a mid-week doubleheader. First pitch for game one is set for 4 p.m. with game two following.
Admission to all Ole Miss softball games is free, and fans are encouraged to bring chairs and coolers for the outfield seating. Outside food or drink is not allowed inside the stadium area of the Ole Miss Softball Complex. Fans can also hear the game on Reb Sports Radio on 102.1 FM in Oxford, 101.3 FM in Grenada, 1240 AM in Jackson and online at RebSportsRadio.com.

The Rebels enter the mid-week tilt with a 16-24 record and a 3-14 mark in league play. Freshman shortstop Allison Brown leads the team with 31 RBI and needs just one more RBI to break the Ole Miss freshman record currently held by former All-American Lauren Grill. Sophomore RT Cantillo has a team-best .365 batting average, while Londen Ladner and Cali Overbeck are tied for the team lead with five homers. Senior Kendall Bruning leads the Rebels in the circle with 12 wins, a 4.12 ERA and 111 strikeouts in 149.2 innings.
Kentucky comes to Oxford with a 21-23 overall mark and a 7-11 record in SEC games. Senior Kara Dill leads the Wildcats with a .379 batting average, while fellow senior Brittany Cervantes has a team-best eight homers and 27 RBI. Chanda Bell has posted an 11-8 mark in the circle with a 2.93 ERA and 141 strikeouts in 114.2 innings.
Ole Miss leads the all-time series 26-14 over the Wildcats and last year’s doubleheader in Lexington was canceled due to inclement weather. Kentucky took 2-of-3 from the Rebels in the last meeting in 2010.
