TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (Ole Miss Athletics/WTVA) - The No. 4 Ole Miss baseball team dropped a tough pitchers' duel, 3-0, in Game 2 at Alabama on Friday night.

Brady Feigl turned in another strong outing, allowing just one run on six hits in five-plus innings of work before giving way to Houston Roth. Roth masterfully escaped a bases-loaded, no-outs jam in the sixth inning, but it wasn't quite enough on an uncharacteristically cold night for the Rebel offense, which tallied just four hits against an excellent complete-game outing by Alabama starter Jake Walters.

Feigl held the Crimson Tide scoreless through the first five innings. He struck out the side in the second inning, all swinging. Alabama threatened in the third, placing runners on first and second base, but Feigl induced a groundout to Grae Kessinger to escape the inning. He kept it rolling from there, fanning two of three in the fourth to retire the Tide in order.

The Ole Miss offense tried to piggyback on that momentum in the fifth after a leadoff single by Will Golsan. Golsan stole second and made it as far as third, but the Rebels couldn't push him home.

Alabama led off with a single in the sixth and came to load the bases before Roth stepped in, making two tremendous plays in the field. The Rebel pitcher scooped up a chopper on his first pitch and tossed a strike to Nick Fortes for the force out at home. Roth then was the tail end of a 3-6-1 double play, hustling to cover first base to end the inning.

Ole Miss looked like it might put together one of its customary late-inning rallies in the eighth after a leadoff double by Chase Cockrell. The Rebels came to load the bases after both Kessinger and Ryan Olenek were hit by pitches. However, Thomas Dillard came up just short of the clutch grand slam, as his deep fly ball to right field fell in the glove of the Alabama outfielder just shy of the warning track.

Roth struck out the first batter in the bottom half of the eighth before walking the next two and giving way to Greer Holston. The Tide tacked on two more runs on a double and a sacrifice fly before Holston fanned an Alabama batter for the final out.

Tyler Keenan singled for the Rebels' fourth hit of the day in the ninth inning, but the Ole Miss rally stopped there along with its six-game winning streak.

Ole Miss and Alabama are set for a Game 3 rubber match Saturday at 1 p.m. CT.
