Lynn and Team Get Revenge

The Rebels came back and turned it on early as they defeated Vanderbilt this afternoon. The Rebels really put together a good game and finally got some runs to back up some excellent pitching. Tomorrow should be interesting.

(SID)NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Lance Lynn turned in a dominant performance on the mound, holding a no-hitter into the eighth inning, as No. 14 Ole Miss (15-6, 1-1 SEC) used 11 hits to take down No. 1 Vanderbilt (20-1, 1-1 SEC) by a score of 6-1 on Saturday.

It was the first loss of the season for the top-ranked Commodores as Ole Miss jumped on Vanderbilt early with five runs in the first two innings and Lynn held the Commodores in check at the plate.

Lynn (2-2) picked up his second win of the season as he gave up the one run unearned run on one hit with three walks and five strikeouts in 8.0 innings of work. Craig Rodriguez got the Rebels through the ninth inning with a walk and a strikeout as he preserved the one-hit performance for the Rebel pitching staff.
