College World Series 2014 Scores: Ole Miss Rebels 6, TCU Horned Frogs 4

The Rebels advance after something approaching an offensive outburst in Omaha

One game is not a trend, and particularly not in baseball, a game where any number of small factors can contribute to a breakout game or fluke. Still, it had to be encouraging for Ole Miss fans to watch a team that on Thursday night seemed capable of actual offense.

After all, the Rebels had twice as many runs (six) and nearly twice as many hits (11) against TCU in this evening's elimination game as they had in the two College World Series games that preceded it. Will Allen and Sikes Orvis had as many hits Thursday as Ole Miss' entire team had going into the game against the Horned Frogs. After having disappeared for the first half of the week, the Rebels' bats suddenly came alive when they most needed it.

But beating TCU once was the easy part, or at least the easiest part. Ole Miss now has to defeat Virginia in back-to-back games in order to make it to the championship series (where they could face Vanderbilt for the national title). By the time the game begins at 8 p.m. ET Friday, the Cavaliers will have had almost two days to rest up from their grueling game against TCU. Ole Miss and its offense are all out of mulligans.
