Thees wins in debut, Rebels fall to FSU in Seminole Classic title game

SUNDAY: FLORIDA STATE 8, OLE MISS 0

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Ole Miss dropped the title game of the Seminole Classic 8-0 in five innings to host Florida State on Sunday at JoAnne Graf Field. Despite the loss, the Rebels posted a solid opening weekend with three wins, including a pair of run-rule victories. 

The Rebels (3-2) threatened in the top of the first after FSU starting pitcher Lacey Waldrop recorded two quick outs but walked the next three batters to load the bases. However, Ole Miss starting pitcher Kendall Bruning struck out, looking to end the inning.

The Seminoles jumped on the scoreboard in the bottom of the frame after leadoff hitter Tiffani Brown reached on a hit-by-pitch, stole second and then scored when Ole Miss first baseman Londen Ladner dropped a throw from second on a ground ball. FSU added two more runs in the second, aided by two walks, a hit batter and two more Rebel errors, including an errant throw by Bruning on a groundball that allowed both runs to score with two outs.

Third baseman Briana Hamilton added the Seminoles’ lead with a solo homerun to left field to start the bottom of the fourth, and FSU tallied three more runs in the frame, highlighted by a two-run single to right by centerfielder Courtney Senas that put Florida State at 7-0.

Bruning (2-1) suffered the loss after allowing four runs, one earned, on two hits in 3.1 innings. She struck out two and issued two walks. Lauren Lindsey entered in relief in the fourth and pitched final one-plus inning and allowed four runs, three earned, on six hits.

The Rebels return to action next weekend when they travel to Southern Miss for the Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Invitational featuring Belmont, Southern and the host Golden Eagles. Ole Miss kicks off the tournament Saturday against Southern University and Belmont.
