OXFORD, Miss. – Coming off four consecutive home games last week, the Ole Miss softball team will head south to Ruston, La., to take on Louisiana Tech on Wednesday in a doubleheader at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. CT.

The Rebels (22-29) are 20-10 in non-conference games this season, including an 8-0 (5) victory over Louisiana Monroe in their last non-conference game April 17 in Oxford. Wednesday’s doubleheader will be the final two road games of the regular season for the Rebels.

Ole Miss freshman pitcher/first baseman Madi Osias has the highest batting average on the team at .388 in 67 at-bats. Osias also has a team-high tying six home runs. Among batters with at least 70 at-bats, sophomore third baseman Allison Brown leads the Rebels with a .331 average and a team-high 37 RBI and 15 doubles.

Junior pitcher Carly Hummel continues to lead Ole Miss in the circle with 108 strikeouts in 137.0 innings of work and a 4.80 ERA.

The Rebels continue to play stingy defense, ranking first in the Southeastern Conference and second nationally with a .981 fielding percentage. Ole Miss has committed multiple errors in a game just three times all season.

Ole Miss is 5-4 all-time against Louisiana Tech. The Rebels last played the Lady Techsters in 2011, with Tech winning the first game and Ole Miss winning the second game 8-0 in Denton, Texas.

Louisiana Tech freshman outfielder Kristen Miles has the highest batting average on the team at .366. Senior infielder Amanda Krueger and freshman infielder/pitcher Anna Cross lead the Lady Techsters with six home runs each, and senior pitcher/utility player Melanie Goff has a team-high 28 RBI.

Senior pitcher/utility player Michelle Jones (10-8) is Louisiana Tech’s top pitcher with 82 strikeouts in 114.2 innings of work and a 3.72 ERA.

Ole Miss will host its final SEC series of the season Friday when it welcomes conference newcomer No. 15 Texas A&M to Oxford. The Rebels will honor their three seniors, Brittany Broome, Erinn Jayjohn and Kelly Nolan, prior to Sunday’s game at 1 p.m. CT.
