The weather ruined the rubber match but it was still a good Opening Weekend for Ole Miss baseball. New Friday starter Will Ethridge and the offense put on a show Friday, lighting up the scoreboard and silencing the Wright State bats on the way to a 10-1 victory. Saturday was a tough one as new starter Zack Phillips had a shaky debut, but the Rebs put up a fight and scored five runs late to make it close.
Regardless, the good guys remain No. 10 in D1Baseball’s Top 25 and will (hopefully) do battle with Arkansas State on Tuesday before traveling down to New Orleans to take on Tulane this weekend.
We also talk about the Basketsharks’ Tuesday night matchup against South Carolina and what it could mean for NCAA Tournament seeding.
