OXFORD, MS. – The Alabama baseball team was able to come from behind to beat #7 Ole
Miss 12-10 in extras on Saturday in Oxford.
The Crimson Tide fell behind 7-3 after 4 innings but were able to score three runs in the sixth
inning and four in the seventh to take a 10-7 lead. The Rebels were able to score two in the
eighth and one in the ninth to tie things up and send the game into extras. A Zane Denton two-
run home run in the tenth inning gave Alabama the lead and Dylan Ray (1-2) closed the door in
the bottom of the tenth to give Alabama the 12-10 victory.
Alabama started Jacob McNairy on the mound, and the right-hander had a tough time today. He
allowed seven earned runs and ten hits in three and two-thirds innings pitched. The ball was then
handed over to Jake Ledger, who went four innings, giving up two runs off three hits, with eight
strikeouts. Ray then came into the game for the final two and one-third innings, giving up one
run off two hits with two strikeouts.
“This was an amazing effort from so many guys who made so many winning plays today. We
kept fighting all game,” said Head Coach Brad Bohannon.
The Rebels started John Gaddis, who went three and two-thirds innings, giving up three runs off
four hits and two strikeouts. The bullpen was an issue for Ole Miss, as Alabama scores nine of
their twelve runs off of the Rebels bullpen, with Brandon Johnson (1-2) getting the loss.
“It was just a really complete team effort and a huge, huge win today,” added Bohannon
With the win, Alabama will win the weekend series against Ole Miss and move to 20-12 on the
season, and 6-5 in the SEC. The seventh ranked Rebels fall to 19-11 on the year and 4-6 in the
SEC. The series will wrap up tomorrow in Oxford at 2 pm before Alabama heads back home for
a midweek game against Belmont on Tuesday at 3 pm.
