Despite some late game drama, Hayden Dunhurst made sure to not let a 4-home run performance from his team be all for not. The sophomore catcher’s walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth allowed #4 Ole Miss (10-2) to complete the series sweep over Belmont 8-7 at Swayze Field on Sunday and win their 5th straight game.
Tim Elko continued to terrorize Belmont pitchers, capping off an outstanding week by going 2-for-3 at the plate with both hits being home runs and had 4 RBI. He was joined by Justin Bench (2-for-5) and Kevin Graham (1-for-2) in the home run department, the latter getting 2 RBI.
Derek Diamond went 4 innings on the mound while the bullpen allowed 4 hits and struck out 4 batters, with Taylor Broadway getting the win (2-0) when it was all said and done.
