OXFORD, Miss. – One big inning made the difference and it allowed No. 17 Ole Miss to force the winner-take-all game with No. 7 Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Softball on Sunday at the NCAA Oxford Regional.
Ole Miss (40-18) used a pair of home runs to spark a five-run third inning which netted the hosts a 5-1 win over Louisiana (52-5) and prompted an upcoming deciding game for the NCAA Super Regional berth.
The Ragin' Cajuns and Rebels are set to return to field at the Ole Miss Softball Complex at 5:30 p.m. for the opportunity to advance to meet the winner of the NCAA Tucson Regional championship which features Arizona and Auburn.
Fans can hear the game on ESPN 1420-AM and the ESPN 1420 app or view the action live on ESPN3.
The Rebels turned the tide of a scoreless contest in three consecutive at bats with one out in the third inning. A home run from Mikayla Allee snapped the tie, then Kylan Becker raced home on a throwing error and Abbey Latham's home quickly made it 3-0.
Back-to-back singles from Kourtney Gremillion and Casidy Chaumont in the bottom of the third led to Louisiana answering with its tally.
Alison Deville and Kandra Lamb tossed the final 4-2/3 innings of the contest and held the Rebels to a single run to give the Ragin' Cajuns bats a chance.
With the bases loaded for Louisiana in the sixth inning, a leaping grab by Allee at shortstop preserved the margin for the Rebels.
