    Ok, watching the game on tv and one of the OM guys was just giving a teammate a back rub. Hmmmmm. Gives a whole new meaning to “taking one for the team.”

    Ole Miss batting

    Miller first-pitch swinging pops to CF. 1 out. … Ferguson gets down in count 1-2 but works Hayes for a walk. … Basham … count 0-1 and Ferguson is picked off. 2 outs. … Basham fouls off six or seven pitches then walks. … Henry … Basham to second on wild pitch. … Henry … on 2-1 count gets infield single behind second. Basham to third. … Fuller Smith goes 2-2 then 3-2 and grounds to first for the third out.

    Rebels would have gotten a run on Henry’s hit had Ferguson not gotten picked off. They did not score in the inning, but, aside from Miller, made Hayes throw a lot of pitches, and now Schwarz is up in the Vandy bullpen.

    Hayes threw 33 pitches in the inning and has thrown 58 for the game.

    Liddle on a 2-2 count is hit by a pitch. … 1 on, no outs for Robin … Bianco out to talk to Bukvich. Nobody in the pen yet … Giobbi on a 1-2 count grounds to Miller for 4-6-3 DP. 2 outs. … Robin pops to second. 3 outs.

    New Vanderbilt pitcher is Steven Schwartz

    Miller reaches an a rare error by Alvarez, who throws wild to first. It’s ruled a hit, but it was a bad throw. … Ferguson’s line drive glances off Alvarez’ glove and lands in foul territory, gets down in the left field corner. Miller scores (4-2) and Ferguson gets to third on the throw home. … Basham goes 1-2 then Ks. 1 out. … Henry tries to squeeze, but doesn’t get the bunt down 0-1 … Henry slaps one to the gap in left-center. Ferguson scores (5-2) and Henry gets to second easily. … Fuller Smith taps back to the mound. 2 outs. … Power grounds to short. It looked like from up here that Giobbi may have come off the bag. No replay shown up here. Bianco argues. Bianco loses.

    The error against Alvarez on Miller’s ball has been changed to a hit.

    2 runs, 3 hits, no errors, 1 LOB.

  10. farley662 Says:

    Not real sure. It was two players. Never saw two ball players doing that before.

  11. farley662 Says:

    Also, could you ask Fuller Smith why he tugs at his crotch in between each pitch?

  12. farley662 Says:

    Do the OM fans really think the Vandy pitcher meant to hit Smith with a 1-2 count? Or do they just like to complain about everything? You are up by four, shut up!

  15. djrebel Says:

    Farley, some questions are so personal that we employ stringers to ask them. Are you interested in that job?

    You are right, it seems crazy that a pitcher would throw at a guy with two strikes, but there’s a lot of bad blood between these two, and I believe neither team minds inflicting a little pain on the other.

    This is scary. Haven’t we seen this unfold before? I’m not turning off the sling-box (since I’m a Direct TV customer) till we record the final out, hopefully, we are recording it, not them!!!! Scary stuff!

  17. djrebel Says:

    Ole Miss batting
    Schwartz still pitching, but there’s action in the pen for Vandy

    Basham Ks. 1 out. … Henry singles up the middle. .. He’s 4-for-5 in this game with three singles and a double. He has an RBI but has not scored. … Fuller Smith hits a low liner to RF. It looked like de la Osa would make a shoe string catch, but it got by him. Smith got to second, Henry to third. It’s ruled a 2-base error. I thought it should have been a single and E9.

    That’s it for Schwartz. New Vandy pitcher is right-hander Mark Lamm. He’s got a 3.30 ERA in 30 innings. His first warm-up pitch was wild, and Ole Miss fans are enjoying taunting him right now.

    Now Fuller Smith’s ball has been changed to a double.

    Runners 2nd and 3rd and 1 out for Logan Power. … Power … Vandy’s infield is in … count goes 2-1, then 2-2 then ground ball to second. Henry scores (8-3). Feinberg gloved it clean but hesitated on where to throw, then just threw to first. 2 outs. Smith to third. … 1 on, 2 outs for Overbeck goes 0-2 then grounds to third. 3 outs.

    Vanderbilt batting
    Alvarez walks, Flaherty singles. …. That’s it for Morgan, and Bittle is in the game. … de la Osa Ks. 1 out. …Liddle Ks. 2 outs. … Runners still first and second, now 2 outs for Giobbi … Giobbi doubles to LF corner to score Alvarez. … 8-4. … Robin singles up the middle to score Flaherty and Giobbi. 8-6. … White walks. … Macias Ks swinging. 3 outs.

    Ole Miss 8, Vanderbilt 6.

    Folks I have to turn my attention to the print edition gamer, and I’ll play blog catch-up later on.
