The top 15 clash between Ole Miss and Southern Miss delivered drama and then some. The Golden Eagles jumped out to a 5-0 advantage thanks to two Hunter Slater home runs. But the Rebels rallied with 3 runs in the 4th and 4 in the 7th to take the lead. They would hold on to win 7-6 Tuesday night at Swayze Field.
Thomas Dillard gave the Rebels the lead in the 7th with a three-run bomb to left. Jackson Prep alum Parker Caracci gave up a run in the 9th but notched the save. The Captain saved the day in center field. Will Golsan's grab with 2 out in the 9th locked up the victory.
The Rebels recorded their 10th come from behind win this season. They're 23-3 overall. The Golden Eagles drop to 17-6 overall.
Nonetheless a great test for two teams in the early Omaha conversation.
