Oxford, MS. – The Alabama baseball team (19-12, 5-5 in SEC) used a solid performance from
starter Garrett McMillan (3-2) to win the first game of the weekend series against the ninth-
ranked Rebels (19-10, 4-6 in SEC) 7-4 on Friday night.

McMillan pitched seven innings, giving up three hits, two runs with one earned, and had seven
strikeouts. He threw 112 pitches over the seven innings, a career high in total pitches.
“Garrett got out of it and really settled in. He gave us an outstanding effort” said Head Coach
Brad Bohannon.

Alabama used a team effort on offense to get after Rebel’s starter Hunter Elliott (1-3), as seven
of the nine starters got on base for the Crimson Tide. William Hamiter and Jim Jarvis both went
three-for-five, with Hamiter driving in one run. Drew Williamson went one-for-three and drove
in three runs, including a two run double in the third inning to give Alabama the lead 3-2. The
Tide then scored two runs in both the fourth and fifth innings, highlighted by RBI singles by
Hamiter in the fourth and Tamez in the fifth.

On the day, Alabama collected 12 total hits and eight walks to put the game out of reach, with
Ole Miss getting a consolation two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth off Alabama reliever
Brock Guffey to make the score 7-4. Dylan Ray came into the game and needed only two pitches
to get the final two outs and secure the Tide victory.

“We had a lot of offensive production tonight, too. This was a good win for us, going on the road
and beating a great Ole Miss team on Friday night in the first game of the series,” Said

Alabama now improves to 19-12 on the year, and 5-5 in SEC play. Ole Miss sits at 19-10 after
the loss, and 4-6 in SEC play. The next game is tomorrow at 2 p.m. in Oxford.
