Avros took the second pitch of the game out of the park to left, giving Austin Peay (10-20) an early 1-0 lead. He would provide the Govs’ second hit with a double in the third inning, as they battled to solve the Rebels pitching staff.

Ole Miss (25-8) responded thanks to first baseman Cael Baker. He gave the Rebels the lead with a three-run double in the bottom of the first.

Two innings later, he provided a home run to left center – a three-run shot that extended the lead to 6-1. The Rebels would tack on three runs in the fifth and sixth innings further extending its lead.

Avros finished the night 2-for-3, adding a third-inning double to his tally. Left fielder Knaje Guthrie and second baseman Malcolm Tipler each had infield singles in the sixth.

Baker went 4-for-4 with six RBI and two runs scored to pace Ole Miss. Shortstop Jacob Martinez was 3-for-4 with two RBI.

Ole Miss starter Tyler Myers (3-1) allowed one run over the opening three innings to notch the win.
