OXFORD, Miss. (AP) -- Robert Morey pitched four hitless innings after giving up two runs on his first three pitches and Virginia took advantage of an eighth-inning error to keep its bid for the College World Series alive with a 4-3 win over Mississippi on Saturday.
An errant throw by second baseman Evan Button helped Virginia (47-13-1) to a two-run eighth inning when Franco Valdes drove in one run and John Barr beat out a double-play attempt to put the Cavaliers ahead.
The defensive difficulties wiped out a nearly perfect outing by starter Drew Pomeranz, who struck out 10 despite a blistered finger in his bid for his third postseason win but finished with a no decision for the Rebels (44-19).
Barr had two RBIs for the Cavaliers.
