Ole Miss Advances To Super Regional

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Drew Pomeranz took a no-hitter into the

seventh inning and tied a school record with 16 strikeouts to lead

Mississippi past Western Kentucky 4-1 on Monday night and into the

super regionals.

Pomeranz, 2-0 in the regionals with 26 strikeouts in 17 innings,

allowed two infield hits in his complete game as the Rebels (43-18)

advanced to their fourth super regional in five seasons. Ole Miss

will play Virginia this weekend.

The first hit for the Hilltoppers (42-20) came on a questionable

call at first base after Matt Smith bobbled a fairly routine

grounder. An error later in the seventh inning helped Western

Kentucky tie it at 1.

Smith atoned for the bobble in the next inning with a two-run

triple that put Ole Miss ahead.
