Ole Miss bests No. 1 Vanderbilt again

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- One night after rallying behind four runs in the ninth and coming back to win a 16-inning thriller, Mississippi maintained the momentum by taking down No. 1 Vanderbilt for the second consecutive night 5-4 to claim a big SEC series win on the road.

With a victory against the Commodores (28-9, 11-4 SEC), the defending national champions, the Rebels (18-18, 7-8 SEC) improve to an impressive 5-4 against No. 1 teams in 2015.

Errol Robinson provided the game-winning hit -- a 2-RBI, bases-loaded single in the top of the seventh, and the Ole Miss bullpen kept the Commodores off the board for the second consecutive contest. Sam Smith came out of the bullpen to pitch two scoreless innings of relief, and Jacob Waguespack closed out the ninth to earn his first career save. The Rebels' bullpen has not allow a run to score in 15.2 innings of work this series.

Nine different Rebels recorded base hits throughout the afternoon as the team tallied 10 of them. Austin Knight went 2-for-3 and added a walk to reach base three times. Holt Perdzock had an RBI double in his only plate appearance, and Cameron Dishon knocked in a run as well.

In his fourth career start, facing a No. 1 team for the second time in his career, freshman Will Stokes (1-3) put together a career outing. The righthander went a career-long six innings, surrendering four runs on seven hits to earn the first victory of his young Ole Miss career.

Ole Miss forced Vanderbilt starting pitcher Jordan Sheffield out of the game early as he lasted only two innings. The Rebels pegged Sheffield for three runs before getting two more off Tyler Ferguson (0-1) in the seventh inning.

At the plate, the Commodores finished the game with eight hits.
