No. 1 Florida's 22-game win streak snapped by Ole Miss in SEC opener

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- On Monday, Ole Miss threw the first perfect game in school history. On Friday, it defeated the No. 1 ranked team in the country. Led by a career-high 12 strikeouts from senior pitcher Carly Hummel and two RBI from junior third baseman Allison Brown, the Ole Miss softball team defeated No. 1 Florida on Friday night.

It was the Rebels’ first win against Florida (22-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) since March 13, 2010, and their first win against a No. 1-ranked team since defeating No. 1 Tennessee 5-4 on March 14, 2007. Ole Miss (15-7, 1-0 SEC) has now won its SEC opener in each year of the Windy Thees era.

“We came out knowing we had nothing to lose, but we’ve been building up to this and we know that we’re playing good softball,” Thees said. “It was great to see Carly dominating on the mound. She’s really feeling it right now and it’s great to see her continue her Utah State outing today. She had all of her pitches working again.”

In Hummel’s last two outings she’s pitched a pair of complete game shutouts, striking out 24 batters en route to a perfect game and a win on the road against the No. 1 team in the country. Dating back to Feb. 15, Hummel has struck out 44 batters in 33.0 innings of work with a 5-0 record, two saves and a 0.85 ERA.
