The Ole Miss Rebels completed a Cinderella run to the NCAA Men’s College World Series, defeating Oklahoma 4-2 in Game 2 Sunday.
Entering the tournament as a serious underdog, the Rebels knocked off Auburn, Arkansas, and Oklahoma en route to the program’s first-ever national title.
The game was scoreless in the top half of the sixth inning when the Sooners appeared to take their first lead of the MCWS. Oklahoma’s John Spikerman laid down a bunt with runners on the corners, scoring Jackson Nicklaus from third. However, Spikerman was ruled out for running inside the baseline, taking the game’s first would-be run off the board.
