One week after the pitching staff got the best of the Ole Miss baseball team, the bats broke out in week three of the Rebels’ fall intrasquad scrimmages, as five total home runs and another five doubles were hit Friday and Sunday.
“I like how the offense bounced back from last week,” Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco said. “They certainly showed a great approach at the plate and some nice power as well.”
On Friday, the Rebels received home runs from sophomore Colby Bortles, freshman Kyle Watson and senior Sikes Orvis. Then on Sunday, Bortles hit another home run and sophomore J.B. Woodman left the yard. In the first three weeks combined, Bortles and Watson each have hit three home runs, and Orvis has hit two.
Junior Matt Martin went 3-3 with two runs on Friday, while Bortles, junior Cameron Dishon, sophomore Henri Lartigue, freshman Will Golsan, Orvis and Watson each had two hits. Orvis and Watson led the team with three runs scored each.
In a much more balanced affair Sunday, only Bortles and freshmen Michael Fitzsimmons and Joe Wainhouse had multi-hit games. Junior southpaw Christian Trent threw 3.0 innings, striking out four while allowing three hits and one run. Freshman right-handed pitcher Will Stokes went 3.0 innings without allowing an earned run and struck out four as well. Sophomore left-handed pitcher Wyatt Short didn’t allow a run in 3.0 innings of action and struck out four, while sophomore right-hander Brady Bramlett fanned seven batters in 3.0 innings of work, and gave up two runs.
Ole Miss will continue its fall schedule Friday and Saturday with two more intrasquad scrimmages. Friday’s scrimmage will begin at 2:30 p.m., while Saturday’s scrimmage is scheduled for 12:10 p.m. All scrimmages are open to the public free of charge.
