Ole Miss Falls in Game 1 of SEC Baseball Tournament

HOOVER, Al.- The Rebels were no match for the Alabama Crimson Tide and their pitcher, Geoffrey Bramblett, who struck out ten Ole Miss batters en route to a 6-1 victory over the boys from Oxford. The Rebels are going home after a poor performance turned in, in the first game of the SEC Baseball Tournament Tuesday morning at the Hoover Metropolitan Stadium, which had served as the home field for the Crimson Tide all of the 2015 season while their stadium in Tuscaloosa is under renovations.

A pitching duel through the first four innings, the game went into the fifth tied at zero. But the Crimson Tide broke through in the fifth, scoring two runs in the top of the inning. The Rebels rallied though in the bottom of the fifth, pushing one across to cut the score to one.

Ole Miss pitcher Scott Weathersby was pulled in the top of the seventh, and that’s when things started to go south really quickly. The Crimson Tide scored four runs in the seventh, increasing their lead to 6-1, and behind Bramblett’s spectacular pitching performance, they were able to shut the Rebels down in the final two innings to send them back to Oxford.

The Rebels saw their record fall to 30-26 on the season. They will now return to Oxford and wait until the field is announced for the NCAA Tournament, where they are hoping for an at-large bid. The seeding for the NCAA Tournament will be announced Monday, May 25th, at 11 a.m. CT on ESPNU.
