Number 9 batter Alex Kliman had 4 hits and drove in 5 runs -- nearly half his season total of 12 RBIs -- as Mississippi beat Sam Houston State 21-13 Sunday to win the NCAA Oxford regional.

Kliman was one of nine Ole Miss hitters with at least one RBI and the Rebels set a season high for runs and hits with 22.

Ole Miss batted around in 2 innings against the Bearkats (40-24), who finally ran out of steam after 2 consecutive comeback victories in the regional.

The first 9 Rebels (40-23) who batted in the fourth inning scored to pull away and Ole Miss failed to score in just 2 innings.

Ole Miss advances to its third straight super regional. The Rebels were ousted by Miami and Texas the last 2 seasons. They have not been to the College World Series since 1972.

Ole Miss will play the winner of the Tempe regional championship between Arizona State-Nebraska.

If Nebraska wins, Ole Miss will host the three-game series.
