Ole Miss Baseball Defeats TAMU 6-4 (5-13-17)


Grills are hot the beverages are cold and it’s a gorgeous night here in Oxford, Mississippi at Swayze field. A time for some more SEC Baseball. Two strike pitch, chopper out to short, Kessinger across the diamond, he’ll get the out, but A&M will pick up the first run of the game, so that lead off wa… One, two on the way. Sharply hit, right passed Homan. Man has it worked out. That ball is hit right back up the middle. That will get the tying run home and the lead-off single, Bob Blackman, does pay off for Ole Miss and we are tied at one, as Fortes picks up his 29th run batted in of the year. And what a… A little bit slow start to this season. Perfect frame for that man, Brian… Think that’s a credit to his folks. Oh knocked down at first, Fortes will try to get the out at second and he does so. There’s a chopper out to Kessinger, he’ll try to turn two, and they got it. For all seven of those teams in Hover and maybe a couple that aren’t in that seven. First pitch by Bortles, hammers it off the top of the wall, he just missed a homer, he’ll wind up with a double, but a foot higher and he would have had what would have been his 10th homerun of the year. Instead it’s his… Ground ball, back up the middle, that’ll plate two Aggies. And a one-two pitch delivered. That’s past the diving glove of Janca, Cooper Johnson rounds third, he will score and it’s a one run game. So Blackman delivers. Oh he’s going to bunt, laid it down, it’s perfect Johnson the throw on the run, what a play! Cooper Johnson with… On the back end of that bullpen for Shawn Anderson, it’s been awfully impressive what they’ve done. And the crowd’s brought to life as Olenek does a really nice job of keeping his nose down and driving that ball in the four hole. Fortes takes the chance and Kopetsky a little slow charging that ball. Kopetsky with a very strong arm. Some life in this building now, Dave Neil. Here’s a chopper to short. Booted by Homan, Olenek trying to steal another run and he gets home safely. We’re tied at four. And a miscommunication on defense for the Aggies as Braden Shewmake has a chance to throw out Rowe at the plate as we see Choruby gets to this baseball and the Aggies go out there for the double cut, and Shewmake catches the ball, look at the hesitation from Shewmake. And then the late throw allows the… A run will score. Greg Kessinger gives the Rebels the lead at 5-4. Ground ball, back up the middle Kessinger, he rounds third, he’ll score. It’s a 6-4 ball game. Shewmake has only struck out 13 times all year. The 2-2 with two outs, coming up. You can make it 14 and the Rebels come from behind and win a very important game here at home to even the series, a 6-4 final in front of the home folks on Graduation Saturday. Boy, just a huge win for the Rebels, four runs in the eighth, to steal a victory from the Aggies.
