NO. 7 OLE MISS CLAIMS NCAA REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP 12-4 OVER TULANE

OXFORD, Miss.

Box Score

-- Seventh-ranked Ole Miss (43-20) advanced to its second consecutive Super Regional on Sunday with a decisive 12-4 win over Tulane (43-21) to claim the Championship of the NCAA Oxford Regional.

The win marks the second-straight regional Championship claimed by the Rebels after hosting its third straight Regional.

Logan Power led the Rebels at the plate offensively, going 5-for-5 at the plate with four runs scored, as the bottom half of the order helped power the Rebels to the win. The bottom four hitters in the lineup went 11-for-16 with eight RBI on the day.

Justin Brashear was 4-for-5 with four RBI and three runs scored, while Mark Wright went 2-for-4 with four RBI and Evan Button notched two RBI as he went 1-for-2 with a sac fly and drew two walks.

Lance Lynn (7-3) picked up the win as he went a season long 7.0 innings, allowing only three runs on seven hits as he walked one and struck out seven. Stoney Stone closed out the game for the Rebels with one run on three hits as he walked none and struck out three.

Stephen Porlier (7-5) was tagged with the loss for the Green Wave as he gave up eight runs on nine hits in 4.2 innings of work. He walked three and struck out two on the afternoon.

Tulane got on the board in the bottom of the first as Mark Hamilton hit a two-run shot to right field, putting the Green Wave up 2-0 with two outs on the board.

The Rebels answered in the top of the second when Justin Brashear doubled down the right-field line to score Logan Power from second. Power singled to open the inning and moved to second on a wild pitch. Brashear then doubled on a double to right field from Evan Button, tying the score, 2-2.

 

 

The bottom half of the inning saw Guidry reach after being hit by a pitch and then moving to second on a single through the left side from Seth Henry. Both runners then advanced on a wild pitch to put runners at second and third with one out. Lynn then recorded back-to-back strikeouts to end the inning.

Ole Miss mounted a rally in the third with two outs on the board. With Ketchum and Power at first and second, Brashear singled through the right side to score Ketchum and move Power to third, giving the Rebels a 3-2 lead. Mark Wright then doubled to right center to drive in both Power and Brashear and put Ole Miss up 5-2.

Wright came up to the plate in the fifth with Brashear on first and hit a 413-foot home run to drive in Brashear as Ole Miss took an 8-2 lead. The Rebels had picked up a run earlier in the inning when Brashear drove in Power who had doubled down the left field line.

Coghlan scored in the sixth inning as Alex Presley grounded into a double play, allowing Coghlan to score from third. Coghlan led off the inning with a double before moving to third on a single from Cozart. With the run, Coghlan left the weekend as the all-time leader for runs scored in a single season. The previous record of 69 was set by Burney Hutchinson in 2001.

The Rebels added a run in the eighth when Coghlan hit a sac fly to center field, scoring Button from third. Button walked before stealing second and moving to third on a groundout from Henry. The run gave Ole Miss a 10-2 lead.

Tulane rallied in the eighth as Brad Emaus hit a two-run homer to left center and cut the Rebel lead to 10-4.

Ole Miss added to its lead in the top of the ninth as Ketchum singled through the right side with one out on the board. JoJo Tann entered as a pinch runner, moving to second on a single to right field from Power. Power moved to third and Tann scored on a single from Brashear. Wright then drew a walk to load the bases for Button. Button notched a sac fly to right to drive in Power and push the lead to 12-4 for the final margin of victory.

Ole Miss will now take on the Miami Hurricanes (39-21) in a Super Regional matchup. The site for the Super Regional will be announced as early as Monday.
