Rebels Win in the Ninth

(SID) PEARL, Miss. – The Rebels came up with the big hit when needed on Tuesday as No. 13 Ole Miss (19-8, 3-3 SEC) defeated Southern Miss 6-5 on a bases loaded sacrifice fly from Cody Overbeck at Trustmark Park.

Ole Miss loaded the bases on three straight at bats before Overbeck drove the winning run across with his sac fly to right field to end the game.

It was a game of rallies as Southern Miss went ahead 3-0 before the Rebels recorded three home runs in four at bats in the fourth inning to take a 4-3 lead. The Golden Eagles reclaimed the lead with a two run fifth inning before the Rebels added runs in the eighth and ninth to claim the win.

Cody Satterwhite (2-0) picked up the win in relief as he entered the game in the ninth with the score tied at five. The sophomore allowed one hit and struck out one before the Rebels claimed the win in the bottom of the inning. Nathan Baker started the game for the Rebels, going 3.2 innings with three runs on two hits, including a two-run home run, as he walked two and struck out two.
