Rebels sweep the day and the series to improve to 25-8 overall, 7-5 in the SEC.
Auburn took a 5-2 lead with a three-run sixth on Friday and scored just one run over the final 25 innings in the series. Ole Miss pitching went a stretch of 22 innings between Auburn runs.
Here’s Mike Bianco:
Sam Smith went 6.2 innings and scattered seven hits for the win.
Josh Laxer, the fifth Ole Miss pitcher, inherited a bases-loaded no outs situation in the eighth and struck out three batters to leave the bases full. Laxer had two perfect innings for his fourth save.
The Rebels scored all their runs in the fifth. The big hits were a two-run double by Auston Bousfield — the Rebels’ only extra-base hit of the game — and a two-run single by Sikes Orvis.
Ole Miss had no multiple hitters.
