Pomeranz’s 2-hitter carries Rebels into Super Regional

OXFORD — Thanks to an epic performance from pitcher Drew Pomeranz and just enough timely hitting, Ole Miss beat Western Kentucky 4-1 on Monday night to win the NCAA Oxford Regional and advance to a Super Regional for the fourth time in five years.

Throwing on just two days’ rest, Pomeranz took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, striking out a career-high and school record-tying 16 batters along the way in a complete game. The sophomore gave up only two hits.
