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
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.
