VIDEO: Ole Miss-UAPB Highlights

Coming off a 0-4 week, with a midweek loss to Southern Miss in Pearl and then a sweep at the hands of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Ole Miss bounced back with an 11-1 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff Wednesday.

Ole Miss (22-8) scored three runs before an out was recorded, as the offense exploded for 11 runs on 11 hits. The Rebels put up put up three crooked numbers on the scoreboard -- four runs in the first, three in the third and three in the fifth.

"On Tuesday, I loved our energy in practice," head coach Mike Bianco said. "I was excited to see how much they got after it in practice yesterday. You have a day off after a tough, tough week of baseball. You come have practice and show that kind of energy. You knew they were ready. We talked to them a little about where we are and what happened and how you have to handle it. It happens to all teams. I don't know if they even needed that. They seem to be the same team they were the week prior."

"We did a good job," said Auston Bousfield, one of seven Rebels with a hit in the game. "We won a game 11-1. We swung it well and pitched well. Collectively as a team, we did a good job of bouncing back."

The middle of the order, Austin Anderson, Will Allen and Sikes Orvis, went a combined 6-for-8 with three doubles, five runs and five RBI to lead the offensive barrage.

J.B. Woodman hit his first career home run, a solo shot to right in the fifth. It was the team's 21st home run through 30 games, having hit 23 home runs in 62 games last season. Ole Miss is also now tied with Kentucky for the most home runs in the Southeastern Conference.

"He's terrific," said Bianco of Woodman. "He hasn't played every single day because of (Will) Jamison out there. He always seems to give you a couple of good at-bats throughout the game, just maybe not as consistently as he would like offensively. You can see the greatness in him. You can tell that it's only a matter of time before gets a little more consistent. It's always great to see somebody hit their first college home run, a guy who came here as such a high-profiled recruit."

The Rebels return to league play with a three-game home weekend series against Auburn (19-11, 5-4 SEC), which lost two of three at home to Missouri this past weekend and most recently fell 8-1 at home to Samford Tuesday night.

"One of the things we have stressed from game one is they all count the same," said Bianco of this weekend's games. "It doesn't matter if you get beat in the ninth. It doesn't matter if you win in the ninth. All the wins count the same; all the losses count the same. Don't get caught up in the race and the scores."

"Auburn is a good team," Bousfield said. "We have to be ready to play this weekend. Today is a good start."

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.

    Gray pants with red and blue stripes on the legs have served Ole Miss football my entire life time. The blue on blue, red on red and white on white are hideous and UGLY! Leave the pants alone.
