Myers masterful in first SEC start

Senior RHP Tyler Myers turned in the performance of a lifetime on Friday in Hoover, and it proved to be more than enough as the Rebel starter outdueled Vanderbilt's Jack Leiter for a 4-1 victory in the SEC Tournament. Myers (4-2) was starting for just the third time of his entire career, and yet turned in career marks in nearly every statistical category. He worked seven complete without allowing a run, and had allowed just four hits by the time he exited in the eighth inning. Although one run was credited to the Rebel starter after his departure late in the game, Myers effectively worked through the Vanderbilt lineup three times to earn the win and help the Rebels advance to the semifinals where they will face No. 1 Arkansas Saturday afternoon.
