ATLANTA (AP) -- B.A. Vollmuth hit two second-inning homers off Georgia Tech ace Deck McGuire to power Southern Mississippi past the Yellow Jackets 12-8 on Monday night and send the Eagles to their first NCAA super regional.
Southern Miss (38-24) will play Florida in the best-of-three super regional in Gainesville, Fla.
Vollmuth, who drove in five runs in the second inning, hit a two-run homer high off the scoreboard in left field to open the scoring. His three-run homer capped the nine-run inning, the most runs McGuire (11-2) has allowed in a game in his career. Only four of the runs were earned.
Todd McInnis (9-4) gave up two runs in 4 1-3 innings in relief of Southern Miss starter Scott Copeland. Collin Cargill recorded five outs for his 11th save.
