After falling behind early, No. 24 Ole Miss used a nine-run fourth inning to propel the Rebels (30-16) to a 10-4 win against Murray State (21-25) Wednesday night at Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field.

“Not as you always draw it up, but a game that we needed,” head coach Mike Bianco said. “A game that we just won offensively. You’ve got to give them a lot of credit. They were just really swinging well. They’re a team that scores a lot of runs. Obviously, they can swing it.

The Gainesville, Fla., native was selected in the 37th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates, but Ole Miss is where he wanted to go. Of course at the time, the Rebels were achieving great success on the diamond, which had Allen eager to get to Oxford.

For most, summer is a time of rest and relaxation, but for former Ole Miss baseball standout Alex Presley, things are not so at ease.

Presley, who is now with the Pittsburgh Pirates, became the next former Rebel to make it to the big leagues this year when he got the call in late June to serve as a designated hitter while the Pirates were on an interleague road trip.

With the all-star break over and home field advantage going to the National League (more precisely Atlanta in this writer’s hopeful opinion) for the World Series, the second half of the major league baseball season is upon us. With a little more than two months of games still to be played and a high number of teams still in contention, the race for October should be incredibly fun to watch.

July marks the midway point of the 2011 baseball season for many former Rebels that are making their name in the professional ranks. The Daily Mississippian’s David Collier will give an update on how our former Rebels are doing so far this season.

Alex Presley – Pittsburgh Pirates – Left Fielder

After leading Triple-A in hits, the Pirates called up Presley last Tuesday to hit in the leadoff spot as the designated hitter during an interleague road trip. In his first game, Presley went 2-for-5 with a home run and three RBI. Presley impressed the coaches so much that he has played in every game since. He is currently batting .324 with one home run and six RBI in 37 at-bats.
