OXFORD, Miss. – Coming off an 8-0 win in five innings Wednesday over ULM, the Ole Miss softball team will remain at home this weekend as it opens a three-game series Friday with No. 2 Tennessee.

The Rebels, which have played just two games at home in the month of April, both 8-0 wins in five innings, will play the Lady Vols at 6 p.m. CT Friday. Saturday’s game will begin at 2 p.m. CT, and first pitch of Sunday’s series finale is scheduled for 1 p.m. CT.

“The biggest thing for our girls to understand is if every girl comes out and has a good game or a great game, we’re going to win,” Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said. “We have that kind of talent. We can’t take plays off and you can’t give them extra outs. They’re a fast team and if you give them extra outs they’ll take advantage of it.”

Ole Miss defeated ULM 8-0 Wednesday afternoon. Starting pitcher Carly Hummel threw all five innings, allowing just one hit while striking out four. Freshmen knocked in four of Ole Miss’ eight runs, and scored five of the eight.

One of those freshmen, Madi Osias, has been on a tear recently. In the last six games the Tustin, Calif., native has gone a combined 11-19 (.579) with nine RBI, eight runs, three home runs and two doubles. Osias is batting .393 for the season in 61 at bats.

Sophomore third baseman Allison Brown is batting .341, and leads the Rebels in hits (47), doubles (15) and RBI (36). Hummel has thrown a team-high 129.1 innings this season with 104 strikeouts.

On Friday, the first 150 fans to the park will receive a free Ole Miss softball replica jersey.

Saturday is Breast Cancer Awareness Day at the Ole Miss Softball Complex. Fans can receive a pink ribbon, pink eye black, pink bead necklace, information on detection, and hear from Ole Miss softball players about their stories with breast cancer. There will also be 100 pounds of free crawfish in the outfield for all fans as a part of Crawfish Saturdays.

In addition to Sundae Sundays, fans can arrive early for Sunday’s series finale to be a part of a program designed to educate on osteoporosis and osteoporosis prevention led by members of the health and exercise department. Participants will receive free prizes and girl scouts will receive free “Bones Savvy” badges.

Tennessee comes into Friday’s series opener with an overall record of 39-6, and is currently riding a 16-game winning streak. After opening the SEC season 3-3 – taking two of three vs. Alabama and one of three at Florida – the Lady Vols have reeled off sweeps of Texas A&M, Georgia and Auburn to move to 12-3 in conference action.

Tennessee has been led at the plate by senior Raven Chavanne, who holds a team-high batting average of .475, and senior Lauren Gibson, who has hit a team-high 11 home runs. Junior Madison Shipman has hit a team-high 48 RBI.

The Lady Vols have been led in the circle by a pair of sisters in Ellen and Ivy Renfroe. Ellen (13-1), a junior, has thrown a team-high 119.2 innings, striking out a team-high 135 batters and posting an ERA of 1.46. Her older sister, Ivy, a senior, is 15-3 on the season with 107 strikeouts in 104.1 innings of work. Ivy has an ERA of 1.48.
