Oklahoma Falls To Ole Miss 4-2, Rebels Claim National Title
News 6-OU Athletics - June 27, 2022 6:26 am
The back-and-forth matchup had its fair share of highlights, controversies and lead-changes.
Oklahoma thought it had grabbed a pivotal lead in the top of the sixth, but illegal baserunning took the score off the board and a pop-fly with one out remaining kept OU at zero heading to the bottom of the 6th.
Ole Miss immediately took advantage and hit a home run out of right field for the 1-0 lead.
Right when it seemed like Ole Miss could take full control, Oklahoma responded in the 7th with a flurry of hits and a walk that gave the Sooners a 2-1 lead.
In the 8th, Cade Horton earned his final out of the season before he was replaced by Trevin Michael. Horton finished with 13 strikeouts, 4 hits and 2 runs allowed in 7.1 innings pitched.
Ole Miss capitalized on the opportunity and scored three times, twice from wild pitches, in the 8th to claim the 4-2 victory and a sweep over the Sooners in the MCWS.
