Ole Miss eliminates Texas Tech from College World Series


For the second game in a row, the Red Raiders found themselves on the short side of a one-run game as Ole Miss defeats Tech 2-1.

With the loss Texas Tech is eliminated from the College World Series, and the furthest post-season run in school history comes to an end.

Ryan Moseley was on the mound for the Red Raiders this afternoon for only his fifth start of the season. Moseley pitched superbly, striking out six and allowing only one run in 7 1/3 innings pitched.

But, as you would expect in the College World Series, the Red Raiders faced another shut down pitcher that arguably threw better than Moseley. Christian Trent went eight strong innings for the Rebels, striking out six Red Raiders without allowing a run.

After trailing 1-0 into the top of the 9th, Tech was able to scratch across a run on an Anthony Lions sacrifice fly that scored Zach Davis from third.

But, for the second consecutive game, Tech's opponent would answer late. This time it was John Gatlin, blooping a single to right field with two runners on in the bottom of the 9th. Aaron Greenwood would come in to score and Ole Miss defeats Texas Tech in walk-off fashion.

Two games and two losses for Texas Tech in the College World Series. Tech finishes the year at 45-21 overall, which is 19 more wins than they had the previous season.

We will have more post game reaction from Omaha, Nebraska tonight on News Channel 11 at 10.
