Ole Miss Wins Governor’s Cup by Largest Margin in History

PEARL, Miss.- The Rebels got the bats going early and often, and never let up. The final score of 11-1 on Tuesday night at Trustmark Park in Pearl was the largest margin of victory in the history of the Mayor’s Trophy/Governor’s Cup, dating all the way back 1979.

Behind the arm of Senior Scott Weathersby, who threw seven scoreless innings in the first start of his 4-year career as a Rebel. He struck out three, only allowed six hits total, and walked just one. The Rebel offense was powered by 15 total hits, 3 of which came from lead off hitter Connor Cloyd. The Junior tallied a career-high four RBI’s on the night.

The final two innings were handled by another senior pitcher, Sam Smith. Ross Mitchell only pitched 2.1 innings for the Bulldogs, but still was enough to take the loss. He allowed four runs on five hits in that little amount of time.

Weathersby was awarded the Most Valuable Player award for his pitching performance.

The Rebels improved their record to 24-22 while the Bulldogs saw theirs drop to 23-22. Ole Miss heads to Columbia, Missouri this weekend to face off against the Missouri Tigers in their final SEC road series of the season. Mississippi State returns to Starkville to face off against the very tough LSU Tigers.
