Rebs need 2 wins

The rain and fog weren’t kind to the Ole Miss batters on Friday night. Despite great performances from pitchers Will Ethridge and Houston Roth, the Rebels couldn’t manage a single run against Mississippi State, falling 2-0 to the Bulldogs.

Fortunately, Ole Miss gets two more chances against the 5th ranked Dogs. Doug Nikhazy will take the mound for the Rebs for Game 2. Nikhazy is coming off an outstanding win over LSU in which he allowed just 1 run over 6.1 innings.

Ole Miss lost the first game to LSU a week ago before winning the next two and taking the series. Maybe the same thing will happen this weekend. First pitch is at 6:00 tonight (SEC Network +).
