Ole Miss went from being the last team to get into the NCAA Tournament field in baseball to winning the College World Series. Some surprising mistakes from Oklahoma in Game 2 of the World Series Finals on Sunday helped the Rebels win the game 4-2 for their first baseball championship in school history.
The game was a scoreless pitcher’s duel until Ole Miss took a 1-0 lead on a Jacob Gonzalez home run in the bottom of the sixth. The Rebels gave the lead up and allowed Oklahoma to score two in the top of the seventh.
The Sooners were leading 2-1 going into the bottom of the eighth. They were six outs away sending things to a deciding third game on Monday.
