Rice saw its seven-game win streak come to an end. The Owls are now 16-8 overall and 0-1 in C-USA. Southern Miss improved to 9-12 on the season and 1-0 in league play.
Walks were costly in leading to three Southern Miss runs in the bottom of the second inning. Tim Lynch and Connor Barron drew free passes and scored on a double to leftfield by Chase Fowler. Fowler came home on a base hit by Nick Dawson for a 3-0 USM advantage.
The Golden Eagles then exploded for six unearned runs in the sixth. USM sent 10 men to the plate, with three reaching with a base hit. The Owls had two fielding errors, allowed a walk and hit batter that all contributed to USM's new 9-1 lead. Southern Miss added another run in the seventh to stretch the final margin to 10-1.
Austin Kubitza started on the mound for Rice and worked a total of 5.1 innings. He was followed by Kevin McCanna, Matt Dittman, John Williamson, Evan Rutter and Ryan McCarthy. On offense the Owls finished with a total of eight hits. The freshman duo of Byrd and Connor Teykl both had two hits.
The teams continue the three-game weekend series through Sunday. There has been a change to start time for Saturday's middle game of the series due to weather conditions in the area. First pitch is now slated for 11 am.
