No. 23 Vols Fall To No. 16 Rebels, 5-4

After locking up a much-needed series win against the 16th-ranked Ole Miss Rebels(34-23 16-14), the 23rd-ranked Tennessee Volunteers (38-18, 14-16) entered Saturday’s matchup with not only a chance to sweep the Rebels, but to pull within .500 of SEC play.

Oh, and a sweep would basically guarantee a trip to the NCAA Tournament.

But the Vols’ five-game winning streak was snapped as an early 5-0 deficit was just too much to overcome.

The Vols were the only team to record a hit in the first inning as Zach Liginfelter and Gunnar Hoglund both made good work in the opening inning.
