In Omaha, Neb., Will Allen delivered an RBI single in the top of the seventh to snap a 4-4 tie and carry Ole Miss past seventh-seeded TCU in front of fans at the College World Series at TD Ameritrade Park.

Allen had a two-out single in the ninth and scored on a double by Orvis (3 for 5, 2 RBI) to give Ole Miss an insurance run and a 6-4 lead.


Allen had a two-run double to cap a three-run third as Ole Miss took an early 3-0 lead.
