Mississippi State Softball Evens Series with Sunday win over Ole Miss

Runs were at a premium in Mississippi State's win over the Rebels.

It took extra innings, but the Mississippi State Bulldogs (21-14, 2-6) picked up a win Sunday at Nusz Park Sunday to even their series against in-state rival Ole Miss (27-10, 3-5).

Amanda Ivy's single in the bottom of the eighth provided the only run of the game as she drove in Kayla Winkfield for the win 1-0 win.

Alexis Silkwood (1-4) picked up her first victory of the season.  In the first she worked out of a bases loaded, no outs jam.  After that, the Rebels never threatened again thanks to a five strikeout performance bolstered by defense.

The teams return to the diamond Monday in a nationally televised game at 6:02pm on the SEC network.
