Bianco's Rebs Win Series

It was a great weekend in Oxford. The Rebels really brought their bats out today and made the Tide pay for it. After opening with a tough loss, the Rebels fought back and won in extra innings Saturday afternoon and led the entire game today. It is obvious the Rebels are still having some troubles on the mound with pitchers coming out of the bullpen. Anyways a great couple of wins for the Rebs.

(SID)OXFORD, Miss. – The Rebels put on up five runs in the first inning and never looked back as No. 13 Ole Miss (18-8, 3-3 SEC) took the series from No. 25 Alabama (17-10, 3-3 SEC) by a score of 15-9 behind the bat of Zack Cozart on Sunday.

Cozart led a Rebel offense that pounded out 20 hits on the day as the shortstop was 5-for-5 at the plate with four runs scored and four RBI, including a three-run home run in the seventh to push Ole Miss to the final margin of victory.

Six Rebels recorded double-digit hits on the afternoon as Logan Power went 3-for-4 with three runs scored and three RBI and Andrew Clark was 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI.

Justin Cryer (1-0) picked up his first win of the season, turning in 2.1 innings of work as he entered the game to relieve starter Brett Bukvich in the third inning. Cryer got the Rebels out of the inning after Alabama scored three runs. The freshman allowed three runs on three hits with a walk and two strikeouts in his time on the mound.
