Rain delayed the start of the Ole Miss' first game in the Oxford Regional. But Rebel bats were red hot Friday night.

Kylan Becker had a 3-run triple in the 2nd and a inside-the-park home run as Ole Miss beat Southern Illinois 8-0. The All-SEC 1st Team selection finished with 5 RBI on the evening. SEC Tournament MVP Kaitlin Lee tossed a four-hit shutout to record her 5th straight victory in the circle.

Ole Miss will host Arizona State Saturday afternoon at 1:30pm. If the Rebels win, they'll advance to Sunday's regional final. A loss means a Saturday 6:30pm elimination game against either North Carolina or Southern Illinois.

Rachel Richlinski is in Oxford covering the Rebels. She will have a postgame report that will air Saturday on the WLBT and FOX 40 morning shows.
