OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Drew Pomeranz took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and tied a school record with 16 strikeouts to lead Mississippi past Western Kentucky 4-1 on Monday night and into the super regionals.
Pomeranz, 2-0 in the regionals with 26 strikeouts in 17 innings, allowed two infield hits in his complete game as the Rebels (43-18) advanced to their fourth super regional in five seasons. Ole Miss will play Virginia this weekend.
The first hit for the Hilltoppers (42-20) came on a questionable call at first base after Matt Smith bobbled a fairly routine grounder. An error later in the seventh inning helped Western Kentucky tie it at 1.
Smith atoned for the bobble in the next inning with a two-run triple that put Ole Miss ahead.
