Ole Miss dropped a weekend SEC series to South Carolina on Saturday, losing the second of a three game tilt, 11-6, after a Friday night shellacking, 13-5. South Carolina is recently ascendant in SEC play, and if Cocky continues on its current course, they just might play their way into the college baseball tournament this year.
On Sunday, however, Ole Miss showed up for work and pulled off a 6-5 win to avoid a series sweep. Parker Caracci and the Rebel staff held the Gamecocks to single-digit runs for the first time all weekend, and the Ole Miss bats backed up the Ole Miss arms.
In the top of the second with no men on and no outs, one of those bats, owned by our NO LONGER HIRSUTE SON (???) Thomas Dillard, decided to swing through a lazy Gamecock sinker and he sent that garbage out to damn Batesburg-Leesville, which is an actual place in the vicinity of Columbia, S.C.
If you’re keeping score, which of course you are, that’s three full fences our big strong boy cleared, Promethean miracle that he is. That should count for three runs, to be honest, and legal scholar and friend of the program David W. Case should argue this motion before the Supreme Court of the United States of America, in our humble opinion.
if you hit a baseball over 3 fences should that not count as 3 home runs https://t.co/nFp8urcCxM— David W. Case (@dwcase) May 6, 2018
The Diamond Rebs are now 36-13 on the year, with six of seven highly winnable games left on the schedule. #GrowTheStache.
