Kevin Graham empties the dugout with walk-off 2-run HR for Ole Miss
Kevin Graham enjoys playing Louisiana-Monroe, and the Ole Miss junior delivered another memory on Saturday with a 2-run walk-off home run to lead the Rebels to a 6-5 victory over ULM.
The Rebels took Game 2 and the series with Saturday’s result, which emptied the bullpen and dugout, as Graham’s blast sailed over the right field wall. The Rebels improved to 13-2 on the season and go for the sweep tomorrow.
In the last 2 seasons against ULM, Graham is 8-for-12 (.750), 3 HR, 8 RBI, 6 runs scored. Per Nick Suss of the Clarion-Ledger, Graham is in the groove lately, and then some.
Kevin Graham has hit four home runs in his last five games.

Graham’s heroics were setup after ULM took a lead thanks to a perfectly executed double steal of first and home in the eighth inning. The rundown between first and second let the runner beat the throw home.
After the game, Graham described the pitch he hit for the home run.
“Fast ball, in. I wasn’t going to let Coach B get on me for not hitting a heater. … “We have a real belief we are going to find a way to win each game.”
