Mike Grace closed out the game. He gave up two hits and two runs in the eighth inning.

Ole Miss scored five runs in the sixth and one in the seventh in addition to the two in the eighth.

Left-hander Matt Crouse threw a complete game for Ole Miss. He struck out nine and scattered four hits.

Third baseman Josh Chism led the Bisons with two hits. Goodenow and Kyle Henry each had one.

The Bisons will send right-hander Connor Sinclair, 1-1 with a 1.50 earned run average, to the mound Saturday at 1:30.

The Bisons are 7-7. Ole Miss is 11-4.
