Rebels Let Another Slip Away

We can question several differenct moves that were made today with defensive substitutions but I am going to let this go a few more games, before I start calling out people. The Rebels just let this one get away from them. It was a tough loss for the Rebels, who let two games get away from them in the last innings this weekend. All in all Ole Miss took the #1 team in the nation and could have easily swept them. They handed Vandy their first loss of the season on Saturday. Yeah alot of people will be upset over this weekend, but I think it was a good one for the Rebs. All those whackos on the Spirit will thing the world has come to an end after we lost two games the way we did.

Bottom line is, we need to win the mid-week game at South Alabama. Hopefully our resident Mobile reader, Cook, will be in attendance to cheer the Rebels on and represent us. It will be a tough game before the weekend series with Alabama.

(AP)NASHVILLE โ€” It went down to the wire again on Sunday as No. 14 Ole Miss (15-7, 1-2 SEC) rallied to take the lead in the ninth inning only to see No. 1 Vanderbilt (21-1, 2-1 SEC) rally with two runs in the bottom of the ninth to take the series with a 7-6 win over the Rebels on Sunday.
