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.

It's cute how they try to make the CWS into a thing. "It's just like the Big Dance, only it's in June and they play outdoors! And their balls are smaller...uh, well, you know what we mean...!"

EDIT: “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, blah blah blah." Just once, I'd like to hear someone say, "Yeah, it was pretty easy for us this year. Those other teams suck like Monica."

Old Miss repeated the Braves lesson from the prior MLB season; just get in the play-off mix and see what happens.

Just to p!ss you off, mi amigo. (Actually, I had forgotten I'd posted it before. It wasn't that funny the first time, really.)

I like CBB and was disappointed Michigan got robbed by a bad call in the regionals. (Fun fact: the last northern school to win the CWS is my alma mater.) It just annoys me that they feel they have promote college baseball as if was exactly like college basketball or football. (Hey, why not promote college baseball the same way you promote MLB? What? You say you don't bother promoting MLB...?!)
