Tide Comes Up Short Against Rebs

The Alabama baseball team dropped a 5-4 decision to the No. 14 Mississippi Rebels Friday night at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.

Alabama (29-21, 10-15 SEC) scored three runs in the bottom of the seventh to pull within one, but could not get another run across in the final two innings. Ole Miss relief pitcher Brett Huber pitched a scoreless eighth and ninth, striking out three in the process to preserve the win for Mississippi (36-15, 16-9).

Starter Drew Pomeranz (7-1) picked up the win for the Rebels, pitching five innings allowing only one hit and one run while striking out nine. Adam Morgan (5-4) suffered the loss for Alabama.

Crimson Tide centerfielder Taylor Dugas, third baseman Jake Smith and catcher Cody Trotter accounted for all three of Alabama's RBI.

The Crimson Tide and the Rebels meet again tomorrow at 3 p.m. CDT. The game will be televised by ESPN2
