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.

Through the years, Oxford-University Stadium/Swayze Field has had different traditions that make it one of the best atmospheres for college baseball in the country. 

This season you can find a Rebel player who hits a double look at the dugout and shoots an imaginary bow and arrow to his teammates, but the bow-and-arrow shooting joins a long list of things that make Swayze a unique baseball environment.

Ole Miss held a 4-2 lead heading into the eighth inning, but the Bulldogs put together a big rally to move into the lead for the first time on the night with the six-run inning on the way to the win.

Top-five recruting class to be counted on early

The 2011 recruiting class, ranked third nationally by Collegiate Baseball and fifth nationally by Baseball America, is finishing up their first fall practice that lasted six weeks and included the Red-Blue scrimmage October 15, 17 other intra-squad scrimmages and this week’s Red-Blue World Series.

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBA locked out its players Friday when its collective bargaining agreement expired, becoming the second pro sports league shut down by labor strife.

The labor deal ended at midnight after players and owners failed to reach a new contract. The two sides remained far apart on just about every major issue, from salaries to the salary cap, revenues to revenue sharing.

The long-expected lockout puts the 2011-12 season in jeopardy and comes as the NFL is trying to end its own work stoppage that began in March.

Cliff Godwin has joined the Ole Miss baseball coaching staff as the program’s new hitting coach, head coach Mike Bianco announced on Tuesday.

Godwin comes to the Rebels after spending the last three seasons as the associate head coach at the University of Central Florida, where he ran the Knights’ offense and also served as the recruiting coordinator.

In his time as an assistant coach on the Division I level, Godwin has worked with 39 players who have gone on to the professional ranks.

The legend of Matt Smith started with a 12th-inning walk-off home run to give Ole Miss a dramatic 4-3 win over Virginia in game one of the 2009 Super Regional.

His game-winning home run over the wall in left-center was immortalized the next day as SportsCenter’s Top Play of The Day. However, in all-too-familiar fashion, the Diamond Rebels saw their season come to an end one game short of Omaha and the College World Series.

Past the halfway point of the Southeastern Conference portion of the season, the Ole Miss baseball team finds itself in a three-way tie for first place in the SEC West.

Lost in this statement, however, is a relatively disappointing .500 winning percentage and a brutal stretch to end conference play.

From his World Series MVP performance in 2004 to his lifetime totals of 555 home runs and 1,831 RBIs, we’ve always known that Manny Ramirez could hit.

From his World Series MVP performance in 2004 to his lifetime totals of 555 home runs and 1,831 RBIs, we’ve always known that Manny Ramirez could hit.

Now we’re seeing just how well he can run.

In 2009, Jose Canseco, the self-proclaimed “Godfather of Steroids,” said he was “90 percent certain” that Manny Ramirez was one of the 104 MLB players who tested positive for steroids in 2003.

Ole Miss lost its series to LSU this weekend, but that’s not really the story. On Saturday, the Rebels showed what they are capable of in a 16-3 rout of the Tigers.

Ole Miss lost its series to LSU this weekend, but that’s not really the story. On Saturday, the Rebels showed what they are capable of in a 16-3 rout of the Tigers.

The past couple of years have been disappointing for Ole Miss baseball fans. The Rebels have routinely hosted Regionals and Super Regionals, and the last couple of years the team has had to travel to a regional, something that has frustrated the fan base.

American sportscaster Ernie Harwell readily admitted that baseball is just a game – as simple as putting a bat to a ball – but simultaneously recognized it for being as complex as the American spirit it symbolizes. It’s a sport. It’s a business. And for some, it’s even a religion.

For Ole Miss Baseball fans, the game is cruel and unusual– yet strangely addicting.

In the “Gorilla Ball” era of the late 1980s and 1990s, it wasn’t uncommon for the score of a college baseball game to resemble that of a college football match.

In the “Gorilla Ball” era of the late 1980s and 1990s, it wasn’t uncommon for the score of a college baseball game to resemble that of a college football match.

After the 1998 College World Series where Southern California defeated Arizona State 21-14 in the title game and had 62 home runs in 14 tournament games, the NCAA began steps to adopt a testing standard called the “Ball Exit Speed Ratio” (BESR) which measures the speed of baseballs when it comes off the bat.
