three stars

From Wednesday’s slate of compelling matchups and mismatches around the Magnolia State:
Peyton Chatagnier: The Ole Miss second baseman/leadoff batter starred in a nomination for play of the year, cleverly stealing three bases — and making the ESPN SportsCenter highlights — in the Rebels’ 16-1 win against winless Alcorn State at Swayze Field in Oxford. Chatagnier swiped second on a pickoff attempt, took third when he noticed no one was covering and then sprinted home after the Alcorn catcher, who had run up the line to take the belated throw from second, left the plate unguarded. Chatagnier also homered in the game and scored four times as the 11-1 Rebels, a consensus top five team, dispatched the 0-8 Braves.
Tanner Hall: The Southern Miss right-hander, who baffled Mississippi State last week, was at it again against Tulane, throwing eight strong innings — four hits, an unearned run and eight strikeouts — in the Golden Eagles’ 7-2 win over the Green Wave at Taylor Park in Hattiesburg. Hall is 2-0 with an 0.84 ERA in five appearances for 10-3 USM.
Hunter Hines: The freshman from Madison Central High, batting in the 3-hole as the DH, accounted for both of Mississippi State’s runs in a 7-2 loss against Texas Tech in a matchup of nationally ranked teams at MGM Park in Biloxi. Hines is batting .367 with four homers, 14 RBIs and 14 runs for the Bulldogs (7-7).
