However, the (29-22) Rebels scored five unanswered runs including a solo home run by Paige Smith. Ole Miss led 5-2 going into the seventh inning.

In the bottom of the seventh inning, Gators had a runner on second for Echols as she smacks a shot out to center field. Skylar Wallace scores and cuts the lead to 2.

Florida put two more on as Reagan Walsh steps up to the plate. Walsh blasts a walk-off three-run shot to the left field wall. It is Walsh’s only hit of the evening. It is her seventh home run of the season. Echols went 3 for 4, a homer and three runs batted in.

Elizabeth Hightower is given a no decision as Rylee Trilcek earns her 12th win of the year.
