Ole Miss Rebels sweep Oklahoma Sooners to win first Men’s College World Series title

The last team to get into the NCAA baseball tournament was the last team standing.

Ole Miss scored twice on wild pitches in a three-run eighth inning and the Rebels won their first national baseball title, sweeping Oklahoma in the Men’s College World Series finals with a 4-2 victory Sunday.

The Rebels (42-23) became the eighth national champion since 2009 to come out of the Southeastern Conference and third straight, and the trophy will stay in the Magnolia State for another year. Mississippi State won last year.

“There is so much to be said for how much we overcame this year, how much we had to fight through, how much we had to pick each other up and never let ourselves get down,’’ team captain Tim Elko said. “The story of our season is going to be told for years and years to come.”

Ole Miss benefited from a runner-interference call that took a run away from Oklahoma (45-24) in the sixth inning. The Rebels also overcame a spectacular pitching performance by Cade Horton, who set a MCWS finals record with 13 strikeouts.

Notre Dame tops Tennessee in stunning upset as top overall seed fails to reach College World Series

Once again, the top overall seed has failed to win the College World Series. This time around, perhaps one of the greatest college baseball teams in history to not win it all didn’t even make it to Omaha. Thanks in part to three runs in each the seventh and eighth innings, Notre Dame has stunned Tennessee 7-3 and eliminated them. Notre Dame punches its ticket to the College World Series at Omaha after taking two of three from the Volunteers at the Knoxville Super Regional.

The Super Regionals are best-of-three series, so the Notre Dame victory on Friday put Tennessee’s backs against the wall. The Vols responded with a 12-4 win Saturday and then had a 3-1 lead Sunday through six innings.

Notre Dame would tie it up with a two-run shot by David LaManna. Jack Brannigan followed with a solo home run to give the Fighting Irish the lead for good. Notre Dame tacked on three insurance runs in the eighth with a two-RBI double from Carter Putz being the big blow.
