Ole Miss earns a berth in the College World Series Championship Series

OMAHA, Nebraska, USA (AP) — Dylan DeLucia scattered four hits in his first shutout for Mississippi, Kevin Graham’s RBI double in the fourth held up and the Rebels advanced to the College World Series final with a 2-0 win over Arkansas on Thursday.

The Rebels (40-23), the last team selected for an overall bid in the NCAA Tournament, rebounded from a 3-2 loss to the Razorbacks on Wednesday night to reach the finals for the first time. They will face Oklahoma in a best-of-three series that begins Saturday.

DeLucia (8-2) outpointed Connor Noland in a duel of aces for his second straight dominant CWS performance. DeLucia was even better than he was against Auburn in the Rebels’ opener in Omaha last Saturday, dominating his fastball and effectively moving his slider to both sides of the plate.
