Tuesday Morning Update

Memphis defeated Ole Miss 4-0 at AutoZone Park sweeping the two-game season series.

Left-hander Michael Wills, a fifth-year senior from Germantown, went into the game with a 2-2 record, a 2.48 ERA over 29 innings.

He had the number of every except Auston Bousfield. Will pitched 7.2 innings, allowing just a four hits – three by Bousfield who finished with four of the Rebels’ five hits – a walk and two strikeouts.

It was disappointing turnabout for an Ole Miss offense that didn’t really dominate Alabama pitching over the weekend but did turn in some clutch timely hits in three games.

A bright spot last night was freshman right-hander Jacob Waguespack. Having been slowed by tendonitis, he pitched for the first time just a week ago in the Governor’s Cup game against MSU. Last night was his second appearanc, and he went 2.1 innings with a hit, no runs, no walks and two strikeouts.

The Rebels are back in action tonight at 6:30 against Southern Miss in Pearl. Josh Laxer (2-0, 2.37) will start for Ole Miss.

    The coaches rankings show why the SEC is the stable for the national championship. The prized stallions in the stalls. The best coaches, plain and simple. The best athletes, too! That leads to alot of money and alot of corruption. Ole Mi$$ is on the upswing at the moment. They have a good coach, some good athletes, alot of money and….we will see.
