Ole Miss was tested by the best offense in the nation. Tennessee Tech rallied twice to tie thanks to the long ball. But the 3rd time wasn't the charm.
Houston Roth struck out Anthony Junior in the bottom of the 9th to secure a 9-8 Rebel victory. The Golden Eagles had the tying run at 3rd base with 2 outs. Ole Miss entered the bottom of the 9th with a 9-5 lead before TTU's late surge.
Will Golsan led the Rebs with 3 RBI in the victory. Mike Bianco's crew advance to the Oxford Regional Final.
