GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Corky Palmer's retirement tour will continue at the College World Series.
Joey Archer drove in three runs, reliever Scott Copeland pitched three scoreless innings and Southern Mississippi beat Florida 7-6 on Sunday night to advance to the CWS for the first time in school history.
The Golden Eagles (40-24), the surprise of the NCAA tournament, overcame a five-run deficit to win for the 12th time in 15 games. The hot streak started shortly after Palmer announced his retirement. Now, he'll get a storybook send-off in Omaha, Neb.
Archer had two huge hits to get them there. He had an RBI double in the fourth, then drove in two runs with a single in the three-run eighth.
