Friday, May 5

There are so many reasons to be frustrated about the 11-9 loss that Ole Miss suffered to Mizzou on Thursday night.

Not only did Ole Miss blow the 9-2 lead that it held in the 6th inning, it also blew a a golden opportunity to gain an advantage in the race to finish in the top 12 and make the SEC Tournament. In doing so, the Rebels lost to a Missouri team that had lost 6 straight SEC games and that, statistically speaking, was far and away the worst offensive team in the conference.

Now, at 24-22 (5-17 SEC), Ole Miss has the worst record in the conference.

This one hurt.

The Rebels and the Tigers play again tonight at 6:00 (SECN+). I suppose Ole Miss could still win this series and make a run at Hoover, but it sure isn’t making things easy on itself.
