Thomas Dillard grabbed headlines Tuesday with his 3-run go ahead blast as #4 Ole Miss rallied to beat #14 Southern Miss 7-6.
Dig deeper with the Rebels and you'll find a stellar performance by pitcher Houston Roth. The sophomore struck out 7 in 5 frames, his only mistake was a 3rd inning home run. Roth's relief kept the Rebel momentum going as the Razorbacks come to town.
"I knew going in that I was going to have to go a long way, like a starter," Roth said. "It wasn't a 1 inning shut it down, and I knew that. I've had some starts under my belt. Just went out there and did what I did."
Ole Miss recorded their 10th comeback win of the season Tuesday night.
"This team, like Coach B says, we always have that bullet in the gun," Roth said. "We're never out of a fight, never. Our hitters have been great when we get behind. There's never a moment where we're down, we're beat. We're never defeated."
