Ole Miss pulls away from Louisiana-Lafayette

TCU rallies past Pepperdine for second trip to College World Series


Ole Miss 10, No. 6 Louisiana-Lafayette 4

Ole Miss broke from a 5-4 game by scoring once in the eighth and four times in the ninth to top Louisiana-Lafayette and earn the program’s first trip to the College World Series since 1972. Clinging to a 5-4 lead in the bottom of the seventh inning, Rebels shortstop Errol Robinson had a perfect relay throw to catcher Will Allen on Seth Harrison’s RBI double down the left-field line, nailing Caleb Adams at the plate to preserve the lead. Holt Perdzock had a pinch-hit, two-run double (with another run scoring after a bobble in the outfield) in the ninth as the Rebels (46-19) pulled away from the Ragin’ Cajuns (58-10). Scott Weathersby (3-1) tossed two innings to pick up the win, and Josh Laxer was terrific, closing with 3.1 innings with one unearned run and three strikeouts for his sixth save. Austin Anderson went 2 for 3 with two runs and a two-run homer in the third inning, and Sikes Orvis hit a homer of his own two batters later for a 3-1 lead. Harrison and Ryan Leonards each went 3 for 4 for the Cajuns.


No. 7 TCU 6, Pepperdine 5

Kyle Bacak had a suicide squeeze to score Jerrick Suiter with the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth, and Riley Ferrell stranded the tying run at third with a strikeout as TCU edged Pepperdine to earn its second trip to the College World Series in the past five years. The Horned Frogs (47-16) trailed 5-4 after Aaron Brown (3 for 4, 2 RBI) doubled to put runners on second and third, and Brad Anderson hit a sacrifice fly to score Bryan Langlois for a 5-4 lead. TCU, which has won 32 of 36 games, used a leadoff single by Garrett Crain and an infield single by Suiter to put runners on first and second. Dylan Fitzerald’s double to the right-field corner scored Crain, and Bacak (2 for 2, 2 RBI) squeezed in Suiter for the Horned Frogs’ first lead. Kevin Cron went 2 for 5 with a homer and two RBI, and Keaton Jones went 3 for 5 with a run for TCU. Brandon Caruson went 2 for 5 with a homer, two runs and two RBI for the Waves (43-18).
