COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Bobby Wahl pitched seven solid
innings, and Sikes Orvis had a two-run single during Mississippi's
four-run eighth inning as the Rebels defeated TCU 6-2 in the
opening game of the College Station Regional on Friday.
Wahl (7-3) gave up two earned runs and four hits while striking
out nine and not allowing a walk. Rebels reliever R.J. Hively
closed out the contest with two scoreless innings.
TCU reliever Brandon Finnegan (3-4) took the loss after allowing
a walk to Tanner Mathis and a single to Alex Yarbrough to start the
eighth in a tied game before he was pulled for Kevin Allen.
Mathis, Yarbrough and Andrew Mistone each had two hits for the
TCU (36-20) played without outfielder Jason Coats, an offensive
leader who suffered a knee injury in the regular-season finale and
is out for the postseason.
