Rebs Win Again!!
OXFORD, Miss. - The Rebels continued to swing the bats on Wednesday, extending its win streak to seven games as No. 22 Ole Miss (27-15, 10-8 SEC) tallied 14 hits on the way to a 12-6 win over Louisiana-Monroe (13-28).
Logan Power and Alex Presley led the Rebels at the plate as both outfielders went 3-for-5 on the day. Power tallied an RBI and scored two runs, while Presley tallied three RBI and two runs scored. Presley opened the game with a solo home run, his third of the season.
"I am proud of how our guys bounced back like we did," said Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco. "I was happy how we played today. Offensively we hit the ball well and we were able to get the big hit. Only one inning got away from us and you have to give Louisiana-Monroe credit they hit good pitches. We pitched a lot of guys and they pitched well."
Jesse Simpson (1-0) picked up his first win of the season, coming out of the bullpen to relieve Bradley Lum in the sixth inning.
