Ole Miss baseball advances to College World Series championship series

OMAHA, Neb. — Pitching on short rest, right-hander Dylan DeLucia willed Ole Miss baseball to the College World Series championship series for the first time in program history.

The Rebels defeated Arkansas 2-0 Thursday in a winner-take-all elimination game to advance to face Oklahoma for the national championship beginning Saturday. DeLucia pitched one of the best and most clutch games in school history, throwing a complete game shutout in which he allowed four hits and no walks with seven strikeouts.

In four starts since the beginning of the NCAA Tournament, DeLucia has allowed five runs in 28 ⅓ innings (1.59 ERA) with 38 strikeouts and three walks.
