Ole Miss wins first title after consequential wild pitches by Oklahoma
Ole Miss was the last team in the 2022 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament field. The Rebels swept through the Coral Gables regional.
They swept Southern Miss in the Hattiesburg super regional. They lost only once in the College World Series second bracket to earn a spot in the national championship.
And on Sunday, Ole Miss completed its sweep of Oklahoma in the College World Series final, earning the program's first-ever national championship.
So much goes into it and we've had so many great teams over the years so at times we came short of this place, and it's been really disappointing,
Ole Miss coach Mike Bianco told the ESPN broadcast. "For 22 years, a lot of guys who wore the uniform, they own a part of this, but the biggest part goes to these guys.
Coming off a resounding 10-2 win on Saturday in Game 1, the Rebels were locked in a pitching duel with the Sooners.
Ole Miss freshman Hunter Elliott and Oklahoma redshirt freshman Cade Horton delivered five scoreless innings each.
In the top of the sixth, it appeared the Sooners had broken the scoreless tie on an RBI bunt single from John Spikerman, but he was called out for interference, and the runner was moved back to third.
Peyton Graham flew out the next at-bat to end the inning.
