A Jackson Prep alum was called upon once again for #4 Ole Miss. Parker Caracci tossed 2 perfect innings to secure a 4-3 Rebel win over Alabama. He struck out a pair of Crimson Tide batters in the 8th for the save.
The victory moves the Rebs to 41-13 overall, 17-11 in SEC play.
Cole Zabowski hit his 8th homer of the season in the victory. Former Hinds Eagle Chase Cockrell got the Rebels on the board early with a RBI single.
The six game winning streak has Mike Bianco's crew in the mix for the West Division title. An Arkansas win leaves Ole Miss a game back with 2 to play.
Game 2 in the series is Friday at 6:00pm.
