OMAHA, NE -- Texas Tech had chances to score against the Ole Miss Rebels Tuesday afternoon in the College World Series but did not capitalize on most of them. Tech lost to TCU on Sunday and so Tuesday’s game in the double-elimination series was do or die. Ole Miss won 2 - 1.

Ole Miss scored in the bottom of the seventh inning after Sikes Orvis reached base on an error. J.B. Woodman was walked and the pinch hitter, Holt Perdzock, singled to bring in Orvis. 

Tech stranded runners in the first, second, third, fifth, sixth, and eighth innings.

The Red Raiders scored one run in the ninth. Adam Kirsch had a single and Zack Davis took over for him as a pinch runner. Davis stole second base on a dropped ball by the Ole Miss catcher. Davis then stole third base – outrunning the throw from the catcher. Anthony Lyons hit a sacrifice fly to right field to score Davis. Tech tied it 1 - 1 in the top of the ninth.

In the bottom of the ninth Ole Miss’ Colby Bortles made it from first to third base on what should have been 1-6-3 double play. Ole Miss put in a pinch runner for Bortles, as well as a pinch hitter, John Gatlin. Tech relief pitcher Dominic Moreno came in with runners at first at third with one out.

Gatlin had a single into right field to score the run. Ole Miss won 2 – 1.
