#5 Ole Miss secured their first SEC sweep of the season on Saturday. Will Ethridge struck out 10 in relief, a trio of Rebels had 2 RBI each in a 10-3 victory over #16 Auburn.
Ethridge lasted 6 and 2/3 innings, allowing just 2 hits. The 10 K's were a career high.
Tyler Keenan gave Ole Miss the lead for good in the 7th with a solo homer. Chase Cockrell provided insurance with a 2-run double in the 8th. Cockrell, Grae Kessinger, and Michael Fitzsimmons also had 2 RBI in Saturday's win.
